2016 Ermitage Les Greffieux, Chapoutier

TASTING NOTES

The most approachable of Chapoutier's single parcel Hermitages, the 2016 Ermitage les Greffieux offers fruit-forward notes of cassis, raspberries and pomegranate. It's full-bodied and plush with a long, elegant finish that hints at mocha and licorice.

M. Chapoutier

The name Chapoutier has long been associated with the northern Rhône thanks to the calibre of their plots around the region, but it was only once Michel Chapoutier took control of the family business in 1988 that quality accelerated it to become the world-class concern it is today. Michel Chapoutier is undoubtedly one of the greatest winemakers of our time, and has successfully extended his business to include vineyards in the Roussillon, Alsace and Australia. But his Northern Rhône Syrahs and Marsannes of exquisite quality remain the main attraction.
