Winemaker Notes

The wine is ruby red with a fruity bouquet, red fruit aromas. The mouth shows a rich, balanced, and concentrated wine.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Refined and silky in feel despite the heft of the plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit core, featuring a racy iron note and long echoes of white pepper and tobacco on the finish. Drink now through 2018.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Meaty notes of charcuterie and leather juxtapose sun-kissed blackberry and cherry in this easy-drinking Syrah. While ripe and richly extracted, it has fresh acidity and a kick of peppery spice to lend balance. Fine-grained tannins lengthen the finish. Drink now through 2024.
WW 90
Wilfred Wong of
COMMENTARY: Finding top-flight Syrahs at reasonable prices is getting harder and harder. Fortunately, the 2014 Maison Nicolas Perrin Crozes-Hermitage came along. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows a delicious Old World spin. Its aromas of savory spices, dried earth, and black fruit should pair it well with slowly-braised beef dishes.

The story of Maison Nicolas Perrin is that of two families who come from the two opposite ends of the Rhone valley, North and South.

In the North, Nicolas Jaboulet, who grew up on the hillsides of Hermitage, and the Perrin fmaily who has been in the southern Rhone, primarily in the prestigious appellation of Chateauneuf du pape, since the beginning of the 20th century.

This geographical reunion finds its meaning in the phrase "Axis Mundi." These latin words stand for the 4 cardinal points and symbolize the Cotes de Rhone region divided between the Northern (Septentrional) and the Southern (Meridional) appellations and right and left banks of the Rhone river.

Crozes-Hermitage is Northern Rhone’s largest appellation, surrounding the steep granite faces of Hermitage to its north and south. Here the rolling vineyards are less extreme and its soils, rich in clay-limestone and alluvial matter, produce Syrahs that range from fruity and charming to lush and seductive. The Syrahs of Crozes-Hermitage have more mass than those from St. Joseph but are less intense than those from Hermitage. While many are intended for early consumption, some of the best Syrahs from Crozes-Hermitage will age beautifully for 5-10 years.

Up to 15% of white grapes may theoretically be added to red Crozes at the time of fermentation but whether this is done or not depends on the decision of the winemaker. The best Crozes-Hermitage Syrahs will be fleshy with black fruit (currant, blackberry and black cherry) and bay leaf qualities, notes of tar and stone, and a well-concentrated finish of smooth tannins.

About a tenth of the wine produced in Crozes-Hermitage is white, primarily composed of Marsanne supplemented by smaller amounts of Roussanne.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
