Chapoutier Petite Ruche Crozes Hermitage 2008

This wine from Chapoutier is sourced from Crozes-Hermitage, made from syrah and vinified in cement vats.  It is not an expensive wine, and it doesn't show new world style depth of fruit, but displays good typicity and drinks well.  A lightly saturated garnet colour in appearance, on the nose, this wine exhibits cherries, spices, plum skins and crunched up herbs.  Lowish acid on the palate is met with medium length, plum skins and herbes de provence.  A wine for drinking, and drinking now.  I drank this over a lunch, and it disappeared quite quickly.  85 to 86 points.

Abv: 12.5%
Price: $27
