2015 Hermitage Blanc Les Rocoules, Marc Sorrel

Much more closed at this stage, the Rocoules is a serious white Hermitage with intense, floral aromatics and a waxy texture. Toasted almonds come through on the long, defined finish of this fresh and pure white.

TASTING NOTES

Lieu-dit Les Rocoules, 60-year-old vines yielding just 20hl/ha. Mango, honeycomb and deeply ingrained spice, very rich and full in the mouth. “I like it when it’s very ripe,” says Marc Sorrel, and this is, but still balanced. Will age well. 1,500 bottles.
