Gilles Robin

2012 Papillon Crozes-Hermitage

Rhone Valley France


The Robin family has grown grapes in Crozes-Hermitage for generations; until 1995, however, their grapes were always sold to the local cooperative in Tain l'Hermitage.  In just over 10 years, Gilles Robin now estate bottles his entire production and consistently produces some of the very best wines of this appellation.  The grapes  for this cuvee were fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks to produce a wine  that is noted for its freshness and aromas and flavors of succulent cherry, blackberry, anise and notes of spice with a graphite edge.  Drink now through 2015.  90 points Wine Spectator.  13% ABV  MAR
