2019 Hermitage Rouge Classique, Marc Sorrel

This is a blend of two parcels and is the hidden gem of Sorrel’s range. 20% comes from Bessards, and 80% from Les Plantiers, just below Le Méal. These vines produce fruit with real power, and this wine has a great presence. But the floral tones and salty fruit make it more accessible than the Gréal, and mean it should start to open up a little earlier.

2019 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.
