2019 Hermitage, Domaine du Colombier

The Colombier Hermitage vines are within the Maison Blanche parcel at the top of the hill. Production is tiny. It is dark, dense, powerful, and salty. Some whole bunch fruit gives structure and punch. Great value.

Domaine du Colombier

Florent and David Viale own nearly 17 hectares in the northern Rhône, where they produce both red and white Hermitage and Crozes-Hermitage. They used to sell the wine from their three plots in Hermitage to Guigal, and their red Crozes-Hermitage to Ogier and to Burgundy, but from 1991 they bottled their own. In the cellar, the Viales prefer oak not to dominate the purity of the fruit. They use large oak tonneaux, where the wines take on terrific finesse and balance.
