Dominated by its minerality with moderate tannins, the 2010 Crozes-Hermitage Le Clos is a sleeper of the vintage. Last year from barrel, this offering revealed high acidity and some reduction, but it is now performing on all cylinders. While not significantly superior to the charming 2011, the 2010 is a ripe, dense, full-bodied Crozes offering sweet notes of black currants, black cherries, licorice, smoke and an enticing minerality running through the flavor profile. This full-bodied red is capable of lasting 12-15+ years.

Other text
Four levels of quality are used to classify French wines : - Vins de Table can come from different grape varieties and regions and do not have a vintage; - Vins de Pays come from a delimited region; - Vins Délimités de Qualité Supérieure, which totalled 66 when the INAO was established, are now being reduced in number in favour of AOC wines due to improvements in wine-growing and wine-making techniques; - Appellations d’Origine Contrôlées. Having acquired an international reputation with its Chablis wines, J. Moreau & Fils has progressively extended its know-how to a range of Vins de Table comprising a red wine, a dry white wine and a rosé wine as well as two medium dry wines : one white and one red. In response to growing demand, all these wines bear the traditional and easily recognizable J. Moreau & Fils label, and guarantee the customer of quality wine, typical of the winery, at a reasonable cost.
