About this Item

Crozes-Hermitage, 2010
3 (1 x 3) 750ml
Domaine du Colombier is owned and managed by the very tall, Florent Viale. At close to 6’8,” Florent Viale could have chosen to play basketball instead of producing wine in Hermitage. While the vineyards have been owned by the Viale family since the first part of the 20th century, prior to 1991, the crop from Domaine du Colombier was sold to negociants. After 1991, they began to produce, bottle and sell their wine. Domaine du Colombier is located in the village of Mercurol which is just slightly due east of Tain, and next to the hill of Hermitage. Domaine du Colombier owns 12 hectares of vines in the Northern Rhone Valley.
Crozes-Hermitage is an appellation of the northern Rhone valley in France. It covers a relatively large area on the eastern bank of the Rhone river, to the north and south of Tain L'Hermitage town. 

Critics Ratings

‘The fleshy, dense purple-colored 2010 Crozes-Hermitage reveals flowery creme de cassis notes intermixed with hints of underbrush and tobacco leaf. Full-bodied, layered, powerful and moderately tannic, it can be drunk in several years or cellared for up to 15.’ – Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, 90/100 (Dec 2012)
