The northern Rhône’s top appellation, Hermitage, here as a rare, gorgeously rich, textured and aromatic white. It’s the craftsmanship of one of the region’s finest domaines, Chapoutier. With top scores from critics, this wine is worth the layout!
Arguably the leading producer in the northern Rhône, Michel Chapoutier has a wine heritage dating from 1808. Seven generations on, the family’s winemaking house has never been in better shape, thanks to Michel’s all consuming passion for the region’s terroir. Wine Advocate recently wrote “Not enough can be said about the quality that consistently comes from this estate.” This magnificent white is from three lieu-dits within the family’s prized Hermitage vineyards – Le Méal, Les Mûrets and Chante Alouette. Three quarters of the wine was aged in oak, the rest in vat to lend the perfect balance of toasty spice to the pure fruit and minerality. Critic Joe Czerwinski described the 2017 as "a terrific wine, maybe the best I've ever tasted".
"Honeyed pear and citrus notes lead into a full-bodied, brassy-hued wine with a rich, velvety texture"
