Jeb Dunnuck, 91 Points- I continue to love what this estate does, and the 2017 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine Des Lises is no exception. Revealing a deep purple color as well as notes of plums, blackberries, ground pepper, and leafy herbs and spring flowers, it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, a lively, vibrant texture, good acidity, and an overall balanced, classy style. Readers looking for a juicy, well-made Northern Rhône Syrah to drink over the coming 7-8 years should snatch this up.
Soils-Gravel soils that are low in clay, allowing for fast draining
Vinification- 100% hand harvested 100% de-stemmed
