Domaine Combier Crozes-Hermitage Cap Nord cuvee comes from a organic agriculture plot of Syrah facing north. This purple-tinted dark red vintage gives off pleasant aromas of raspberry, strawberry or even blackcurrant, associated with more spicy fragrances of pepper, specific of Syrah. On the palate, this Crozes Hermitage Cap Nord 2011 is powerful but fruity. This is a pleasurable wine.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Like with the base Crozes Hermitage, the 2011 Crozes Hermitage Cap Nord has a whiff of volatility to go with notes of potpourri, dried violets, garrigue and ripe blue fruits. Medium-bodied, textured and layered, with good acidity, drink it over the coming 4-5 years.
