Belle Crozes Hermitage Blanc Terres Blanches Magnum: A Taste of the Northern Rhône

The Belle Crozes Hermitage Blanc Terres Blanches Magnum is a stunning white wine from the Crozes-Hermitage appellation in the Northern Rhône Valley of France. Presented in a magnum format (1.5 litres), this wine is perfect for sharing with friends and family, offering a luxurious drinking experience.

Grape Varietals and Terroir

This white blend is primarily composed of Marsanne (70%) and Roussanne (30%), two classic Rhône Valley grapes. Marsanne contributes richness and body, while Roussanne brings floral aromatics and refreshing acidity. The "Terres Blanches" in the name refers to the unique white clay and limestone soils found in the vineyards. These well-draining soils impart a distinctive minerality to the wine.

Tasting Profile

The Belle Crozes Hermitage Blanc Terres Blanches Magnum boasts a beautiful pale gold colour with shimmering highlights. On the nose, it explodes with a captivating bouquet of white peach, apricot, and yellow plum, intertwined with hints of honeysuckle, acacia flower, and a touch of citrus. As the wine opens up, subtle mineral notes emerge, adding complexity and intrigue.

The palate is medium-bodied with a delightful balance between richness and freshness. The creamy texture, characteristic of Marsanne, is beautifully complemented by the lively acidity of Roussanne. The flavours from the nose translate seamlessly, with juicy stone fruits taking centre stage. Hints of white pepper and almond add further complexity, while the underlying minerality provides a refreshing and persistent finish.

Food Pairing

The Belle Crozes Hermitage Blanc Terres Blanches Magnum is a versatile food pairing wine, capable of complementing a wide range of dishes. Its richness and texture make it a perfect match for creamy cheeses, such as Brie, Camembert, or Comté. Baked or roasted chicken with a creamy sauce or rich poultry dishes like coq au vin would also pair beautifully.


For seafood lovers, this wine shines alongside shellfish and white fish. Seared scallops with a creamy risotto or pan-fried halibut with a beurre blanc sauce create a delightful harmony.

Vegetarian Options

Vegetarians can enjoy this wine with flavourful vegetarian dishes such as roasted butternut squash ravioli with sage butter or portobello mushroom steaks with a balsamic glaze. The wine's richness can also stand up to bolder vegetarian options like lentil stew or bean cassoulet.

Serving Recommendations

To fully appreciate the complexities of this wine, it's best served chilled, ideally between 10-12°C.  The magnum format is perfect for larger gatherings or special occasions. However, due to the larger volume, it's crucial to consume the wine within a day or two after opening to preserve its freshness. If you're planning on enjoying it over several meals, consider investing in a wine saver to help prevent oxidation.


The Belle Crozes Hermitage Blanc Terres Blanches Magnum is a luxurious and food-friendly white wine from the Northern Rhône Valley. It offers a captivating blend of richness, freshness, and minerality, making it a delightful choice for discerning wine drinkers. Its versatility with food makes it a perfect choice for special occasions or simply enjoying a delicious glass with friends and family.
