Paul Jaboulet Aine Domaine de Thalabert Crozes-Hermitage 2018
JD94: The 2018 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine De Thalabert showed well, with a floral, pepper, and sappy herb style as well as plenty of darker cherry and currant fruit. With medium to full body, a vibrant, elegant texture, present tannins, and good acidity, this is a classic, balanced Thalabert to hide for 2-4 years and enjoy over the following decade or more.
JS93: The ripeness and opulence here is already impressive with tile, brick, ripe-plum and clove character on both the nose and palate. It’s full-bodied with lots of fruit, but a line of fine tannins runs through the center palate.
