2012 Hermitage Le Gréal, Marc Sorrel

In our eyes, one of the finest wines in Hermitage, the 2012 reminds M. Sorrel of the 2010. Expressive and open on the nose with kirsch and a spice-laden, earthy almost animal edge, the palate has black fruit, coal and super fine tannins and great density of black fruit. This remains good value in the wider context of great wines of the Northern Rhône.

2012 Hermitage Le Gréal, 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.
