International Wine Cellar"Vivid ruby color. Highly perfumed bouquet of red berries, clove, violet and incense, with a subtle bacon fat quality. Sharply focused red berry flavors show surprising depth, with silky tannins adding spine. Turns sweeter on the finish, picking up darker cassis and licorice character and clinging with great tenacity. A more feminine style than the 2006 and likely to offer earlier appeal."

Wine SpectatorToasty with roasted vanilla and espresso aromas leading the way for silky black cherry, plum and violet notes. A lingering streak of iron adds length. Drink now.

Wine AdvocateSlightly better than the 2006, the 2007 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert reveals more black olive, creme de cassis, licorice, smoked meat, and herb characteristics in its medium-bodied, fresh, lively style. It begs for consumption over the next 4-5 years.
