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.

  • Guigal Crozes Hermitage 2010


    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...

    Modern in nature without being anywhere near jammy, surprisingly high acidity and very light tannins. Not bad just different. I would buy it again. Read More

    Wine review by RandyFisher

  • Long Shadows seems like a guest chef program, but in wine.  In college, our dining program would bring in chefs from around the US about four times a year under the "Cross Country Gourmet" rubric.  There was a lottery type system with a limited number of seats, and someone would come from a resto and we'd get a decent meal on our own turf.  LS g...

  • I'm at least one person who said the merlot is best used to soften up Sangio.  It's approved for Chianti as a blender as long as it doesn't exceed 10 or 15 percent.  I can't be bothered to look up the exact number.  It's better than the bad local grapes that used to be required, although I would generally prefer that those wines be called IGT ra...
