2009 Hermitage Blanc Les Rocoules, Marc Sorrel

90% Marsanne and 10% Roussanne. Aromas of cut grass, honey and almond fill the glass. Notes of toast and cream lead into a palate of mouthcoating richness, with sweet, slightly honeyed nut and herb flavours coming through. Very broad, yet supremely deliniated, this wine has all the character and presence of Grand Cru white Burgundy.

2009 Hermitage Blanc Les Rocoules, 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.
