Notes
Saturated ruby color. A hugely perfumed bouquet evokes ripe black and blue fruits, licorice, exotic spices and incense, with cured tobacco and potpourri notes in the background. Shows impressive depth as well as vivacity in its lush blueberry, cherry-vanilla, mocha and fruitcake flavors, which display outstanding definition and back-end lift. Tightens up through the back half and finishes on a youthfully tannic note, with reverberating spice and floral notes and strong persistence. Made from de-stemmed fruit and aged in 20% new oak barrels.

M.Chapoutier

The outspoken Michel Chapoutier is a maverick and an icon in the Rhone valley. He has led the way on biodynamics, is obsessive about proper grape maturity and is as rigorous in the vineyard as they come. Whilst his opinions and straight talking might not always be everybody’s cup of tea, it is rare to hear anything but admiration from his fellow vignerons and winemakers for his dedication, the quality of his wines and the huge impact he has had on the positive image of the Rhone valley. With some wonderful old vines across the varying terroirs of the Hermitage Hill at his disposal, Michel crafts some of the most sought-after Rhone wines in the world.  The style is ripe, concentrated and the although the wines have a modern sheen to them, they certainly easch display individuality and terroir characteristics.
