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.

  • Michel Poinard Crozes Hermitage 2012

    Snoothrank:

    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 agree Mark.  Actually, I'd have been happy with some of the Italian ... was a couple of Gigondas and Crozes Hermitage that were reasonable.  Not much Washington that was in my monthly paycheque! Good choice though Al.  I ownder how it compares with the Monte Bello though?  I'm still wringing my hands...there's some 2007 Monte Bello in Victor... 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...

  • 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
