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.

    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

  • Broke the SIWBM because it's a pre-arrival, so I don't need to store, ... ... and because I never see Hermitage or practically any N. Rhone for around $40.  I'm not an enormous fan of Delas Freres, but that's mostly based on their S. Rhones, and I had a nice Cote Rotie from them a few years ago, so I asked for four of these and got three. Her... Read More

  • Today we did another wine tasting, this time in Tain L' Hermitage.  Wonderful Syrah out here.  We bought a bottle and shared it this afternoon with another couple.  Tonight we shared our nice Pinot from Burgundy with a couple of English ladies.  I don't remember what that small wine sample was; we were in Lyon so it might have been a Syrah or a ...

  • Upside is you have some excellent wines. Downside is the storage--do you know ... many cases of Jaboulet's Hermitage, the DomPeri and Bollinger's, and a few of the Grange. Same vintages amongst them, too, except in the Jaboulet case. All superb wines (leaving aside the storage concerns).Is this all you have, or are there other brothers and sis... Read More
