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.

  • Louis Mousset Crozes-Hermitage 1986

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine for £5 from a wine merchant in Sussex who I think obtained it from a house clearance. Crozes-Hermitage is an AOC created in 1937 for wines north of Tain-Hermitage although wine production in the area goes back to before the Romans.90% of production is red wine made from the syrah grape although up to 15% of the white...

  • So I'm a day late, sue me. Wednesday night a few of us got together in Napa ... ... fruit, soft tannins, a Crozes Hermitage ringer. Many good years ahead for this wine. Have a couple in my cellar that I have been wary to open so young. My fears were confirmed as this wine wants to develop further in the bottle. Delicious now but so much more t... Read More

  • Nice pics.  Too short of time to upload labels from wine you will never find in Cali.  But just compared an aged Syrah from British Columbia with (what I believe) is a comparable representative from Crozes--Hermitage (wrong vintage, though).  I predict that, within 20 years, Syrah from British Columbia and Washington State will exceed the qualit...

  • M. Chapoutier Syrah Crozes-Hermitage les Meysonniers 2009

    Snoothrank:

    For a Crozes-Hermitage, this wine is hitting above weight and just full of sweet cherry and tobacco leaf on the nose; on entry, there is some black pepper, more cherry (even cranberry) and smooth, balanced tannin - though lightish compared to nearby Côte-Rôtie. The finish is medium length, but very satisfying. Excellent wine at a good price. 8... Read More

  • Delas Freres Crozes Hermitage 'Les Launes' 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This Delas Crozes Hermitage is lightish with a leathery prune, rye flour and cranberry (acidic fruit) nose. The body is medium with modest structure - though the balance is good and the fresh acidity is palate-cleansing. A good wine for lighter meats or on the patio. Drink now through 2015. 87 points.
