"If one were to author a book called “The Great Wines of Crozes Hermitage,” it would be a quick read. It is the northern Rhône’s largest appellation, and yet historically there hasn’t been much to write home about. When (wine importer) Kermit Lynch first started poking around there in the ’70s, Gérard Chave told him only one grower was making wines of any note (whom, sure enough, Kermit was importing soon thereafter). Thankfully, things look brighter today. The best terroirs are better treated, and some lovely wines are coming from the area.

Louis Barruol vinifies several of the finest parcels the appellation has to offer, and the result is exactly what a Crozes should be—a gateway wine, serious but a bit more approachable than its bigger sibling, the grand old Hermitage. This juicy, blueberry-and-leather-infused Syrah with a long finish is ready to drink tonight."
