2010 Hermitage Rouge Classique, Marc Sorrel

Made from the fruit from 35-year-old vines, this has an attractive nose of blueberry and raspberry fruit. Given the vibrancy of the nose, the palate is surprisingly delicate and poised, with fine ripe tannins and taut acidity providing subtle structure to the elegant and refined summer-fruit core.

2010 Hermitage Rouge Classique, Marc Sorrel
Domaine Marc Sorrel

Marc Sorrel makes excellent wines on the legendary hill of Hermitage, from superbly situated parcels of old vines. A dedicated grower, he’s most often found tending to the vines, with little interest promoting his handiwork. His holdings are small (just 2.55 hectares) and production of two whites and two reds is low. However, his dedication in the vineyard and traditional methods in the winery lead to wines which are impressive year on year, displaying ever greater complexity as they age.
