LVT 2018 r 2018 wh Straightforward wine, with improvement noted since about 2009. The Pradelle nursery business is now selling 350,000 plants a year, 80% of them Syrah. "Demand for the Syrah has accelerated since 1998," comments Jean-Louis. Jean-Louis is President of the Growers Union of Crozes-Hermitage. There are now three red Crozes, with Les Hirondelles, made from 1970s Syrah, a ****(*) wine in 2015 when cask tasted. The Crozes-Hermitage domaine red has risen from 80,000 to 120,000 bottles recently.

From 2009, there has been an interesting and good new white, the "Courbis" Crozes-Hermitage. Son Antoine is now running the show, and the two white Crozes are on the up: the 2015 Domaine Pradelle white Crozes, from the esteemed slope of Les Pends at Mercurol, was a **** STGT wine, the 2017 a clear drinking ***(*) wine, the 2018 a wholesome **** wine.
