Hermitage Chante Alouette, Hermitage, Northern Rhone, France, M. Chapoutier 2017
A brilliant green gold. Complex and subtle on the nose with aromas of quince, walnut, honey, ginger, acacia with a hint of linden-tree. Notes of almond on the palate, very elegant and good length.
"Cask sample.Tasted blind. Nutty, sweetly spiced nose with fleshy stone fruit aromas. Creamy, soft palate with buttery flavours and ripe fruit at first, but the finish falls away quite suddenly. " (RH) Richard Hemming MW Tasted: Nov 2018
"The blended white Hermitage—the 2017 Hermitage Chante-Alouette—is a terrific wine this year, 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. It's lush, broad and mouthfilling, with a long, harmonious finish. While delicious now, expect it to close up within another year or two, only to reopen once it hits about age ten." 94/100 robertparker.com
