2019 Ermitage Le Méal Blanc, M. Chapoutier

From 50+ year old Marsanne vines, the low yields of this warm site give an intense concentration. 50% ageing in 600l oak foudres gives the oak presence, stitched nicely into the sumptuous fruit. It's smoky, stony, grippy and deceptively light on its feet.

2019 Ermitage Le Méal Blanc, M. Chapoutier
M. Chapoutier

The name Chapoutier has long been associated with the northern Rhône thanks to the calibre of their plots around the region, but it was only once Michel Chapoutier took control of the family business in 1988 that quality accelerated it to become the world-class concern it is today. Michel Chapoutier is undoubtedly one of the greatest winemakers of our time, and has successfully extended his business to include vineyards in the Roussillon, Alsace and Australia. But his Northern Rhône Syrahs and Marsannes of exquisite quality remain the main attraction.
