93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Crozes Hermitage les Varonniers is full-bodied and rich, but it's already almost enjoyable to drink, thanks to its bold layers of cassis, mulberries and spice. It's close to being jammy but is held back by a delicious savory edge of black olive on the velvety finish. (JC)  (12/2017)

91-93pts Vinous

 Brilliant violet. A deeply perfumed, smoke-tinged bouquet evokes ripe dark berries, cola and violet, backed by a subtle mineral nuance. Sappy black and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors show very good clarity and are supported by a core of juicy acidity. Closes smoky and long, with building tannins and the mineral note adding urgency.  (4/2017)

Wine Spectator

 The 2015 Crozes-Ermitage Les Varonniers is packed with tar, black currant paste and fig bread notes along with a cocoa powder edge on the finish. It's a wine built on bass, but stays balanced.  (10/2016)
