TASTING NOTES

Lieu-dit Les Greffieux, planted in the 1980s. Rich and powerful mango flavour and texture on the palate, with a light honeyed spice over the top. Fairly low acidity, but a mineral streak keeps it lively. Long finish.

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.
