The color is deep, with a garnet hue deepened by purple tinges. The nose shows seductive whiffs of crushed black fruit—dark cherries, blackberries and blackcurrants—that evolve in the glass to reveal slightly woody and smoky notes, together with a hint of coffee. Spices, and especially grey pepper, add lift and harmony to this already rich aromatic palette. The wine is fresh and lively in the mouth, with persistant flavors and good length. It is solidly built around a good tannic structure, true to its origins. The texture is silky and the balance fine. It pairs well with red meat, feathered game and lamb in pastry.

Wine AdvocateThe dense purple-colored 2010 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine des Grands Chemins offers abundant meaty, smoky, tapenade, creme de cassis and bay leaf notes as well as exceptional intensity and full-bodied power. It can be drunk early in life or cellared for 10-15 years.

Wine SpectatorOffers black tea and singed apple wood notes, with a core of slightly chewy blackberry paste and plum sauce flavors. The apple wood accent mixes with cedar on the lightly firm finish, leaving a slightly chewy feel in the end. This was the better of two samples. Drink now. 500 cases imported.
