2014 Hermitage Blanc, Marc Sorrel

A cut above Hermitage ‘classique’ thanks to the 100% old-vine Marsanne from ‘Les Greffieux’ (a vineyard partly responsible for Marc’s flagship red, Le Gréal). This has a fantastic nose – generous stone fruit with an aromatic mineral quality and a persistent freshness on the palate to balance out Marsanne’s honeyed richness.

2014 Hermitage Blanc, 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.
