2004 Yann Chave, Crozes-Hermitage, France, $26. This lovely middleweight should probably be consumed over the next two to three years. Sporting excellent balance, the complex aromas and flavors reveal blackberries, meatiness, smoke and a hint of spice. The tannins are very forgiving; the balance impeccable. Discounters have this for $19 -- I nabbed a case; 88/90.

Dang! I raided my discounter yesterday but didn't see that one. Thankee for the heads-up.

I bought half a case of the 03 and 04 Hermitage, though have not tried the Crozes. YC's wines are all terrific.

E. Guigal and Jaboulet Aine both made a very nice Crozes in 03 as well.

Certainly hard to beat for the price. I liked the Crozes so well, I ordered a case of the Crozes "Rouvre" last night, which is only $23 a bottle.
