Emmanuel Darnaud Crozes-Hermitage Les Trois Chenes 2018 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (92-94)

I tasted four components of the 2018 Crozes Hermitage Les Trois Chênes, rating them all within this range, whether from tank (20% of the blend) or barrel. Taken together, they're more dark fruited and plummy than some years, with ripe, supple tannins and ample concentration, but they retain a sense of vitality and freshness. Exciting potential, for sure. When I visited Emmanuel Darnaud this year, he remained steadily upbeat, despite the hailstorms that ravaged his (and others') Crozes-Hermitage vineyards earlier in the season. "The hail came at a 'good' time," he said. "We lost this year's crop, but it allowed the vines to set new leaves and recover." He didn't think it would have a major impact on 2020. For 2017 and 2018, Darnaud said it was important not to pick too late, to keep temperatures down during fermentation, and to extract gently to retain finesse in the wines. He's experimenting more and more with whole-cluster fermentations and likes the results so far. "I'm not ready to say it should all be whole cluster, but it can add some freshness and finesse," he said. Personally, I was blown away by the aromatics and texture shown by the 100% whole-cluster trials that he offered for tasting. While known predominantly for his outstanding red wines, fans of Marsanne should make the effort to track down Darnaud's limited production (three barrels each) of white Crozes-Hermitage and Saint-Joseph. There likely won't be much Darnaud wine from the 2019 vintage, so buy the wines while you can.

Paul Jaboulet Aine Crozes-Hermitage Thalabert 2014 (6x75cl)

Vinous (91-93)

Opaque ruby. Spicy, intensely perfumed aromas of dark berry liqueur, Indian spices and potpourri. Sweet and seamless on the palate, conveying deeply concentrated black currant and blueberry flavors and suggestions of candied flowers and star anise. Picks up a smoky nuance on the impressively long, penetrating finish, which features a repeating floral note and harmonious tannins.

Paul Jaboulet Aine Crozes-Hermitage Thalabert 2015 (6x75cl)

Vinous (92-94)

Youthful violet. Powerful mineral- and spice-accented blue fruit liqueur and violet aromas are complemented by suggestions of licorice and white pepper. Concentrated and expansive on the palate, offering intense blueberry, cherry and spicecake flavors and an exotic Indian spice quality that builds on the back half. Shows excellent clarity and lift on the finish, which is framed by velvety, harmonious tannins that fold smoothly into the juicy dark fruit.

2017

Paul Jaboulet Aine Crozes-Hermitage Thalabert 2017 (6x75cl)

Vinous (93-94)

Youthful purple color. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe blackcurrant, blueberry, violet and olive and a smoky bacon nuance builds in the glass. Sweet and broad in the mouth, offering concentrated, mineral-tinged dark fruit liqueur, floral pastille and candied licorice flavors and a strong hint of spicecake. Chewy tannins build steadily on an impressively long, broad finish that leaves blue fruit preserve and exotic spice notes behind.

Paul Jaboulet Aine Crozes-Hermitage Thalabert 2018 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (93-95)

Although the fruit sourcing has changed from the old days, the 2018 Crozes Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert remains a solid offering in the Jaboulet lineup. Violets accent blackberries and plums on the nose, while the palate is full-bodied, lush and velvety, underscored by doses of salinity and licorice on the lengthy finish.
