Julien Cecillon Crozes Hermitage "Les Marguerites" 2014
In stock. Ships in 1-2 business days.
This may be only fourth vintage for Julien but he's already shown that he's inherited the winemaking genes from his uncle, famed Rhone winemaker Jean-Louis Grippat. Julien now sits comfortably next to producers like Chave, Gonon, and Clape on Michelin-starred wine lists.
If the 2014 vintage was uneven for the Northern Rhone as a whole — the region saw hail and some Drosophilia flies — where it was good, it was very very good, thanks to the warm summer, August rains, and September sunshine. This is a totally open, fruit-forward and extremely expressive Syrah. We've offered this wine before as part of a 2-pack of the Julien Cecillon discovery pack—if you have enjoyed the 2013, then you should definitely try the 2014. (Or try a mini vertical, we have a few bottles left of the '13 vintage) Julien & Nancy are hands on in the vines (see below) and hands off in the cellar: the wine is made with only indigenous yeasts, and aged 13 months in 5-year old barrels.
You should take advantage of this offer if you like medium-bodied wines with a balance of spice and fruit, but this wine, and especially this vintage, won't knock you out with tannins. It's elegant and drinkable now, you don't have to wait to pop these bottles— serve it with your fall dinners, from grilled steaks to vegetarian dishes like portobello mushrooms.
