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...
