2019 Hermitage Blanc, Domaine du Colombier

This is a densely powerful wine, with pronounced apple character on the palate: rich with orchard crunch, with some weighty energy behind. Exuberant and athletic, with a sumptuous energy. Only two demi-muids were produced.

2019 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.
