The Wine Advocate:
Belle's 2017 Crozes Hermitage les Pierrelles is as good an entry-level Crozes as one is likely to find. Scents of leather, mocha and plum give it a sense of complexity not often found in such a round, generous Syrah. It's full-bodied and a bit creamy across the mid-palate, then tightens up to finish firm, with notes of cracked pepper and dark fruit. Tasted twice (once blind), with consistent notes.
