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.

  • Delas les Launes Crozes Hermitage Rouge 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.

  • For March, my tasting group explored the length of the Rhône valley.  Probably for consistency of quality, one of our best tastings to date with just about all o the wines showing well and being universally liked by all.  I was lucky to find/have access to some older vintages from estate sales and store cellars, so it made for a fun night.  Here...

  • Crozes-Hermitage Domaine Mucyn 2009

    Snoothrank:

    The 2010 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine Mucyn is an outstanding, as well as reasonably priced, effort exhibiting plenty of dense black currant fruit, licorice, roasted herb, new saddle leather and spice box characteristics. Medium to full-bodied and ripe with good acidity as well as lingering, light tannins, it should drink nicely for a decade. 90/10... Read More

  • Paul Jaboulet Aîné Crozes-Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert 2007

    Snoothrank:

    The nose showed cherries in fresh turned soil, with notes of undergrowth, candle wax, minerals and floral stems. On the palate it was lean, showing tight blackberry fruit, herbs and hints of stone. The finish was long, with red fruits clinging on the mid-palate. This wine closed in on itself and took six hours, open in bottle, to really show its... Read More

  • Crozes-Hermitage Graillot 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Rich and spicy on the nose with dark brambly fruit and incipient notes of black pepper, leather, violets and wood smoke all over a nice crushed granite base note. On entry, this is big and smooth with very fine, polished tannins and solid acidity keeping the broad palate impression lively and supporting sweet and sour wild berry fruit. The tanni... Read More
