Gilles Robin Papillon Crozes Hermitage 2016
Gilles Robin Papillon Crozes Hermitage 2016 – “Dark purple. Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of dark fruit preserves, smoky minerals, exotic spices and bacon fat. Chewy and sweet on the palate, offering concentrated blackberry, cherry preserve and spicecake flavors braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Shows excellent clarity on the impressively persistent finish, which leaves cherry liqueur and smoked meat notes behind. Drink 2024-2032.”
