A good Crozes-Hermitage from Les 4 Vents


Lucie Fourrel’s first vintage was in 2010 after working at Clusel-Roch and Vincent Paris.  When her sister Nancy Cellier joined, the new venture was named Domaine Les 4 Vents.  Today the sisters farm some 10 ha in Crozes-Hermitage.  I was surprised by the 2015 Domaine Les 4 Vents, Les Pitchounettes Rouge, Crozes-Hermitage.  No doubt this wine is from a ripe vintage but the pure fruit and floral flavors of the Northern Rhone are not lost.  What you gain is a savory, slightly salty, wine that fills the mouth and continues to expand in the aftertaste.  I find that rather impressive for a Crozes-Hermitage.  I recommend you grab a few bottles from MacArthur Beverages.

2015 Domaine Les 4 Vents, Les Pitchounettes Rouge, Crozes-Hermitage – $22
Imported by Wine Traditions LTD.  Alcohol 13%.  The flavors start off with focused grapey, purple fruit with a slightly floral touch.  The fruit is pure, backed by some extract, and almost crunchy acidity that becomes more watering by the end.  This is a savory wine revealing good weighty flavors over moderate structure.  With air it becomes more floral and certainly more expansive with ripe, floral flavors in the mouth filling aftertaste.  *** Now – 2021.
