La Butte d'Or Crozes-Hermitage
Alain Jaume ( Grand Veneur )
France - Rhone Valley - Crozes-Hermitage AOC

The wine comes from vineyards planted on well drained soils that are composed of gravels deposited by the Isere and Rhone Rivers. They store heat and bring a beautiful expression of Syrah.
The nose offers intense aromas of violet, blueberry and blackcurrant that mingle with subtle notes of mint and black pepper. In the mouth, the wine is juicy and pleasant with a velvety texture.

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2017 Crozes Hermitage La Butte D'Or is another terrific Crozes Hermitage from this vintage. Deep, ripe notes of black cherries, black raspberries, leafy herbs, and pepper all flow to a medium to full-bodied, layered, textured beauty that has sweet tannins and tons of fruit. Drink it any time over the coming 5-7 years."

wine enthusiast"This is a rich, concentrated Syrah packed with inky cassis and blueberry flavors. Full bodied and glossy in texture, it's a pleasing, intensely fruity wine edged by hints of anise and olive. Primary in nature, it's at peak now–2025. - ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA"
