Crozes Hermitage, Northern Rhône

Marc Sorrel

Crozes-Hermitage Marsanne 2017

Pleasure and precision in a light, refreshing frame. Kumquat, pawpaw, a hint of butterscotch hard candy. Vibrant succession of mineral, tart fruit, and dairy flavors. Creamy, lithe and brilliant with a lingering finish. Stellar winemaking. — 5 days ago

Hauterives Crozes Hermitage Syrah 2020

Dark garnet right to the edge with a nose of black plum & blackberry with a touch of earth. In the mouth slightly fruit forward with same fruit as on the nose. Medium body, mild acidity, low tannins, nice finish. — 13 hours ago

La Chapelle Hermitage Syrah 2013

This is a deep ruby wine.

It offers robust notes of leather, anise, black cherry, pipe tobacco, peppercorn, nutmeg, baking spice, and earthiness; it has smooth, well-integrated, and velvety tannins.

100% Syrah 13.5% ABV.

Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2019

What was left in the bottle by the 3rd night turned to an enjoyable liquid violets. Prior nights were underwhelming. Too young. Regardless, good value, especially at that 3rd night sweet spot. — 11 days ago

l'Appel des Sereines Syrah 2019

Textbook Northern Rhone Syrah in a very affordable, drink now package. Bing cherry, currants, light and pleasantly integrated peppercorn and smoke notes, a touch of beef bouillon and soil. Medium bodied, pure textures of finely grained tannin and perfectly integrated acidity. Med+ on the finish. If you have been drinking new world syrah and are hesitant to buy in on a Cote-Rotie, Hermitage or even a Saint-Joseph, this is a nice entry point. — 15 days ago

Crozes-Hermitage White Rhone Blend 2019

L'Hermitage Blanc Marsanne Roussanne 2014

From the hermit on the hill himself; this is a luscious, rich, full, pungent even, white wine. Takes hours and hours to stabilize into a highly perfumed nose full of white flowers, some jasmine, and white mushroom. The pallet is unorthodox for any white wine standards: umami, brioche, over ripe stone fruit, and root vegetable notes: jicama, Jerusalem artichoke. Full bodied, high alcohol, medium acidity, high flavor intensity and a long finish. Incredible wine. — 6 days ago
