Bay and olive notes give this an old-school edge, with a tangy sanguine detail cutting through the core of gently mulled cherry and damson plum fruit. A light white pepper hint runs through the finish. Drink now through 2021. 2,300 cases imported.
The pretty raspberry, violets and cherry blossom-scented 2014 Crozes Hermitage la Petite Ruche is medium to light-bodied, forward and supple, with an easy drinking, well-made feel. Drink it anytime over the coming couple of years.
