2016 Hermitage Le Gréal, Marc Sorrel

Le Gréal is one of France’s very best wines: a top performer in every vintage. And the tiny-production 2016 will challenge 2015 for the greatest ever made. But with so little available of this ageworthy wine, you’ll have to move fast.

2016 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.
