Tried last night at dinner:
1. LaurentCombier AC: Crozes-Hermitage (12.5%; www.CharlesNealSelections.com; aged in cement eggs) 2012: Very dark color; some earthy/chalky slight roasted/coffee bit licorice/blackberry/Syrah attractive bit complex/Rhonish nose; soft light blackberry/Syrah/pepper light earthy/chalky slight roasted/coffee flavor w/ light tannins; med.long light blackberry/Syrah bit earthy/chalky finish w/ light/smooth tannins; eminently drinkable now & for next few yrs; a pleasant enough CdR-level Syrah at a fair price but doesn't hold a candle to StCosme CdR or an Ojai SBC Syrah. $20.00 (Prima/IlC)
