Rich, concentrated and tannic, the 2017 Crozes Hermitage les Varonniers comes from a parcel of vines grown on the same granite in Hermitage as les Bessards, but it has a west-facing aspect.

Recent vintages of the 2017 Crozes Hermitage les Varonniers have borne more than a passing resemblance to Hermitage, a rare occurrence in the Crozes appellation. This is full-bodied and concentrated, with hints of cocoa and crushed stone joining cassis, espresso, black olive and licorice, while rich tannins leave a chewy impression on the long finish.
