2018 Domaine Du Coulet (Matthieu Barret) Crozes-Hermitage Et La Banniere

The 2018 Crozes-Hermitage Et La Banniere has a touch of Cornas in its wild, crazily exotic perfume of ripe black fruits, sappy herbs, gamey meat, and tapenade-like nuances. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and with the vintage's plush yet pure style front and center, it's already hard to resist yet should easily keep for 7-8 years, if you're so inclined. It's another rockingly good wine from this estate.

These aren’t for those looking only for pure, clean fruit and the wines are loaded with gamey, violet, and searing peppery notes. They’re singular, high quality, and well worth seeking out.
