Grapes producing “Le Méal” come from the Méal hillside. This is an old fluvioglacial alluvial deposit soil with large pebbles which contribute to the soil warming. The vines (more than 50 years old) produce very low yields and guarantee high quality. On the palate, this wine is ample and round, with a fine exotic freshness and hints of roasted almonds.
"Slightly more reserved now than on release, the 2012 Ermitage le Meal Blanc offers tons of honeyed minerality, caramelized peach, toasted bread and liquid rock-like aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, rich, vibrant and with terrific acidity, it's a sensational white that will have 3-4 decades of life"Jeb Dunnuck robertparker.com 97/100 September 2015
