2016 Hermitage Rouge Classique, Marc Sorrel

Marc had half the amount of fruit in 2016 as 2015, and it shows in this wine’s concentration. The texture is superb, with pure red fruits, smoke and spice of lovely depth.

2016 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.
