On Wednesday, the NY Times Tasting Panel headed by Eric Asimov and Florence Fabricant took on the wines of Crozes Hermitage. While they were not particularly happy with the wines in general, 67 Wine came out pretty well.

The Times reviewed 10 wines out of the many they tasted, I get to stock about 6 Crozes-Hermitage. We actually intersected 4 times, with the wines of Alain Graillot, Bernard Ange, Domain des Remizieres and Domain du Colombier all making the cut.

Even some of the wines we aren't carrying have been in our consciousness. In the past, I've carried the wines of Domain des Lises, but when I decided to reduce the overall price of the Northern Rhone section I replaced it with the A
Les Peyrouses Cotes du Rhone (100% Syrah as well) from highly regarded Cornas producer Alain Voge. Ben has wanted me to carry the Dard et Ribo for some time now, but I still haven't had the opportunity to try it. I actually have two bottles from Domaine Belle in my personal cellar, albeit much older vintages.
