Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 90-93 points

The 1997 Crozes-Hermitage Les Varonniers is a soft, fat, slightly acidic offering. It possesses a saturated dark ruby/purple color, as well as a pronounced cherry liqueur nose with smoke, roasted herbs, and underbrush notes in the background. Full-bodied, dense, chewy, and made in a user-friendly, accessible style, this wine should be delicious when released, and age well for 12-15 years.
