2018 Hermitage Le Gréal, Marc Sorrel
90% comes from le Méal, with the rest coming from Les Gréffieux, there’s also just 10% coplanted Marsanne in the blend. The vines date back to 1928. This is astonishing. Notes of tapenade and dark berries on the nose, and also a wonderful fragrance. There’s a mineral tang here, that coats the palate, as well as wonderfully refined tannins. So long and so impressive, this is one of the Rhône’s greatest wines.
