2013 Hermitage Blanc, Domaine du Colombier

From a vineyard planted in 1944 situated at the very top of the hill, this is always the last plot harvested chez Colombier. Marmalade, peach kernel, and a fusion of white flowers abound on the nose, with honey and almond on the embryonic, intense and long palate. This will be great in time.

2013 Hermitage Blanc, Domaine du Colombier
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.
