Ermitage Rouge ‘Le Méal’ – Much tighter and needs more cellaring than the rest of the Ermitages

2.2ha, 100% Syrah

This wine is produced with grapes coming from Le Méal hillside (150-200 metres altitude). It takes its name from the old French word meaning “the best”. This slope is composed of high terraces of shingles and clay. Vines are over 50 years old. The wine is characterised by a supple character, a fine balance and intense fruit aromas. Yields are again exceptionally low, at around 20 hl/ha. Le Méal produces wines with great perfume, richness and amazing ageing potential. The nose exhibits a ripe fruit character, with rich, stewed blackberries and powerful but velvety tannins on the palate.

Much less nose than Greffieux. A really massive mouthful of tannin that dominates the fruit at present. Massive torso! Quite a bit of alcohol on the end. All future here.
