Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 vintage was difficult for the flatter, more water retentive soils in Crozes Hermitage, yet both releases from Caroline Frey and her team are solid wines. Another outstanding wine from Crozes Hermitage is the 2014 Crozes Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert. It's certainly one of the reference point cuvées from the appellation and has a great track record with regards to ageability as well. Sweet black cherries, blackberries, tobacco leaf and earth all emerge from this medium-bodied, supple, already delicious Syrah that can be drunk with considerable pleasure anytime over the coming decade.
