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.

  • Maison Nicolas Perrin Crozes-Hermitage 2013


    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

  • 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...

    Nicely fruity with good acidity and a good tannic finish. Fruitier than other French Syrah I have tasted. Nicely balanced. A winner. Improved with some air. Read More

  • I have had the pleasure the last few days to taste some nice wines courtesy of a local deli offloading wines they didn't understand they had and just wanted rid of. And I know retailers do not look after wines here (I am from the UK and now live in Shanghai, via New Zealand). I tend to taste over a few days with Vacuum resealing to look for deve... Read More

    Wine review by martins2002

  • 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...
