Crozes-hermitage Wine

for this region?

 

Crozes-Hermitage is the Northern Rhone’s largest appellation, both in terms of acreage and in terms of production. It produces mostly red wine made from Syrah, but some white wine from Marsanne and Roussanne is made as well. The wines are also often less expensive and of lower quality than those of neighboring appellations, so it’s important to familiarize oneself with the best producers, such as Graillot and Colombier. Most Crozes-Hermitage is less ageworthy and better for early drinking than other Northern Rhone wines.

  • But comrades, the northern Rhone has always been very good as many of you intimate; however, as people discover "undiscovered" wines (read cheaper, unpronounceable, appellations that evoke the Crisis of the 3rd Century in Rome - or perhaps, the spread of certain heresies of the early Mother Church, or something more "exotic" like the Mistral) th...

  • St Joe is one of the most underrated regions IMO. Crozes too actually - I have some from 1990 that are just excellent.But yeah, the prices are getting stupid. I don't  think it will become Burgundy though. Burgundy is kind of a reaction to Bordeaux, whereas Hermitage used to be put INTO Bordeaux.So people who objected to the large corporate owne...

  • Ferraton Père and Fils Crozes-Hermitage la Matinière 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A whiff of barnyard (but not the good kind) and bit of that gaminess on the front end with muted ripe black plum and dried fig. The tannins were a touch harsh, not the best Rhone blend we've had. Read More

  • Brunel de la Gardine Crozes-Hermitage 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Wonderful bright cherry nose with a hint of red currant and cranberry. A bit of cherry cola on the palate, with a surprisingly thin centre... light to medium density, overall. Lacking gravitas, but tasty and fitting for café style fare (plus). Very much like a modern (Syrah-dominated) Cotes du Ventoux in terms of depth. Should appeal to most p... Read More

  • Crozes-Hermitage Jean Astier 1983

    Snoothrank:

    This bottle was part of a lot I bought on the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/64390 . Crozes-Hermitage is an AOC created in 1937 for wines north of Tain/Hermitage [ about 40 miles south of Lyon ] on the east bank of the Rhone,although wine production in the area goes back to before the Romans.It is much larger though less prestigious ...
