2010 Ermitage de L'Oree Blanc, Chapoutier

This is a wine of contrast: while the nose is reserved and almost exclusively peppery and savoury, the palate is full-bodied and driven by notes of clove and roasted hazelnuts. The finish lingers into the realm of marmalade, then fresh citrus fruit. This fat, spicy and savoury number is one of the most seductive white Hermitages made by Chapoutier.

2010 Ermitage de L'Oree Blanc, Chapoutier
M. Chapoutier

The name Chapoutier has long been associated with the northern Rhône thanks to the calibre of their plots around the region, but it was only once Michel Chapoutier took control of the family business in 1988 that quality accelerated it to become the world-class concern it is today. Michel Chapoutier is undoubtedly one of the greatest winemakers of our time, and has successfully extended his business to include vineyards in the Roussillon, Alsace and Australia. But his Northern Rhône Syrahs and Marsannes of exquisite quality remain the main attraction.
