The greatest Crozes-Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert since the magnificent 1990 is the 2009. Jaboulet has nearly 100 acres in this appellation, and the 2009, which is bursting with potential, represents a great buy for Syrah lovers. Its dense purple color is followed by an explosive bouquet of blackberries, sweet cherries, licorice, Provencal olives, graphite and subtle smoke. Full-bodied with silky tannins as well as a terrific mouthfeel and palate penetration, this gorgeous offering should drink well for 15 or more years.

Perhaps the best Domaine de Thalabert Crozes-Hermitage made since the blockbuster 1990, the 2009 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert (nearly 10,000 cases produced) boasts an opaque purple/blue color along with notes of blueberries, boysenberries, creme de cassis, licorice, incense and Asian spices. The wine possesses sweet, velvety tannin, an opulent, full-bodied palate, laser-like precision and good acidity as well as freshness. It should drink well for 15 years or more.
