Crozes-Hermitage is a significant wine appellation in the Cotes du Rhone region of France where red wines crafted from the Syrah grape, sometimes blended with small quantities of permissible white grapes, exhibit an elegance not achieved outside the northern Rhone.
The communes on the eastern side of the Rhone that comprise the extent of the appellation are Beaumont-Monteux, Chanos-Curson, Crozes-Hermitage, Érôme, Gervans, Larnage, Mercurol, Pont-de-l'Isère, La Roche-de-Glun, Serves-sur-Rhône and Tain-l'Hermitage.
