Sale price Price $ 34.99 Regular price Unit price  per 

From 40-year-old vines on clay and limestone soils in Crozes proper, destemmed and aged in demi-muids (20% new), the cassis-scented 2019 Crozes Hermitage Les Pontaix picks up hints of crushed stone and pencil shavings on the nose as well. It's a moderately concentrated, easy-drinking Crozes, with soft tannins, succulent fruit and a long, softly dusty finish.
