Crozes-hermitage Wine

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.

    Snoothrank:

    Pop and pour it was a bit shy on the nose but black and blue fruit were there. Good fruit on the palate and a bit earthy. Mid palate balancing acids took over and finished with enjoyable tannins. Old world in style, nice enjoyable wine but not particularly complex. Read More

    Wine review by Dennis Lim


  • Sounds really worthwhile.  What organization put this on? I do agree that green pepper is pretty common, both the vegetable (a sign of underripe fruit, often, but common in syrah and cabernet, the product of MIBP) and the spice (although white pepper or black pepper are more familiar).  Interesting and heartening that Cornas showed well, since y...
