2010 Hermitage Blanc Les Rocoules, Marc Sorrel
Like so many of the whites in this vintage, this is an absolute delight. Made predominantly from Marsanne and just 5% Roussanne, with no new oak utilised and bottled without filtration, the fruit characters are able to sing. Notes of lemon, pear and frangipane are vibrantly evident on the nose and palate. Rich and mouthfilling, but given backbone by zesty acidity and a steely minerality, this is at once appealing, restrained and great.
