Hermitage Wine

 

The Northern Rhone’s most important appellation, Hermitage is a south-facing slope overlooking the town of Tain L’Hermitage which is planted mostly to Syrah. White Hermitage is right and round, and is made from Marsanne and Roussanne. The best of these Syrahs combine power and finesse and are very ageworthy. It’s not going too far to say that this is the place in the world where the Syrah grape finds its best expression.

  • Guigal Crozes Hermitage 2010

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Sounds really worthwhile.  What organization put this on? I do agree ... not so much Cote Rotie or Hermitage, so I've tended to buy from there.  I like St. Joseph, but it's definitely leaner, and I don't hold it.  Crozes is so variable and mostly pretty middling. Be interested to see who all was represented ,and what you tasted.  Grange has go...

  • Grange is very good, without a doubt, and sometimes even worth the money. But ... still sticking with the best Hermitage, Cote Rotie and Cornas (in that order) before it, if I'm forced to choose. Damned happy don't have to, though.Still need to hear a lot more about the actual wines tasted, the vintages, the venue and setup, the opportunity to... Read More

Really nice wine out of the blocks. Lovely fragrance on the nose, deep pitched dark red fruit with nice florals and pepper spice.Good medium plus freshness to the fruit on the attack, the acidity doesn't overwhelm but is not ...

  • OT, I wouldn't limit myself to Chave.  David Parker brought a 1989 Jaboulet Hermitage La Chapelle to a dinner; I would have paid $100 for it, but his site had it for $245.  I can think of a a few more that I would pay $100-150 for if someone wanted to do me a huge favor.  But they don't come from SB.CC, it's not that great a story, just a party,...
