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.

  • Burgundy on a Budget.  You get to write that column.  I have to say, ... imagine the '89 Jaboulet Hermitage La Chappelle I drank a few years ago would be over $500 at a restaurant.  (Lucky me that I was sitting near David Parker of Benchmark Wine Group at the time.)  But Burgundy, yeah, that'll eat up the night's wine budge Read More

  • JD - you can't tell. I've done a few tastings of Cote Rotie vs Hermitage, all from the same year, six wines each, all blind. The whole point was to find the co-ferments and see if you could tell them apart from the single grape wines at ten years, and next time at twenty years.The point of the co fermentation has nothing to do with aromatics or ...

  • Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage Blanc 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Floral blossom, white peach and golden apple aromas with lemon shortbread and sun dried hay notes on the nose. Unctuous, creamy and full bodied with generous baked apple, persimmon and peach fruit, a vanilla cream center and a lemon drop candied note delicate on the edges. Finishes with excellent length and more creaminess. Read More
