2015 Hermitage, Domaine du Colombier

2015 Hermitage, Domaine du Colombier

Still very much in embryonic form upon tasting in 2016 as a barrel sample, it gives just a sense of the potential of this vintage in Florent’s talented hands. Concentrated and structured, with considerable swirling dark, brooding fruit and spice abound. One for the long haul: your patience will be rewarded.

Due to tiny quantities and high demand this wine is limited to 12 bottles per customer.

Tasting notes

Jeb Dunnuck, robertparker.com (December 2016)

All destemmed, aged for 18 months in demi-muids. Remarkable aromatic finesse already, boding well for the future; it majors on rich, ripe fruit rather than oak. Very full and rounded, but full of life and energy, this is buzzing with vitality. It has fresh, lip-smacking acidity and tannin, and a very long finish. A fantastic balance between freshness, concentration and pure, regal Hermitage fruit. Whatever style of Hermitage you like, this shouldn’t disappoint - it has depth and power as well as finesse. Very impressive, complete wine.
