Chapoutier Crozes Hermitage les Meysonniers 2017 Shiraz
In 2017 this is an exceptional Crozes by any standards but especially on the value-for-money front, probably thanks to the extra heat of the 2017 vintage leading to maximum fruit expression. The colour is opaque black-purple, the aromatics are densely perfumed with trademark licorice and black pepper notes, while the palate is full and firmly structured. The best vintage of this wine that I've ever tasted. Drink now to 2027.
