"The wine’s crimson-flecked amaranth hue complements an intense nose of red and black fruits (Morello cherries, blackcurrants) and mocha, with spicy and liquorice notes.
On the palate, the wine shows fruit, a charming, slightly textured velvety body, and a fat which coats the palate with savoury tannins. The finish is long. Les Entrecoeurs can be enjoyed in its youth for those unable to wait. The more patient wine lover will discover that the wine can age nicely for up to ten years."

"Another strong effort under the Pierre Le Grand label, the 2018 Pierre Le Grand Crozes Hermitage was raised entirely in tank. The plummy fruit takes on charred, meaty overtones, while the palate is full-bodied, creamy and ripe, with a long, silky-textured finish." -JC, Jan/31/2020
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Delicate swathes of eucalyptus and bramble accent pristine blackberry and plum in this juicy, immediately inviting Syrah. Full bodied and freshly concentrated, it's a vibrant red edged by an elegant granitic spine. Fine, delicately lingering tannins add to its easy appeal. Best now -2026." -ALCI
