Tasting Notes

Marsanne from Les Greffieux, bought in 1983-84 from Madamemoiselle Chierpe, re-planted 1990, can be plus a little Marsanne from Les Rocoules, fermented, raised 5-10 year 228-litre oak casks 14 months, from 2007 20-25% new oak used, only sold in France, not enough for export, 1200bts made JLL 

Going through malolactic fermentation when tasted. Barrel sample. A nice subtle hit of smokiness on the nose with marzipan and honey. Really rich with a mealy note and spiced pear compote. Needs time to integrate and shows real depth of fruit also. A nutty tinge on the finish. Big and gawky at the moment but shows power and weight and also finesse. Drink: 2024-2035 17+/20 Alistair Cooper, MW, JancisRobinson.com

Marc Sorrel has some of the most brilliant sites in Hemitage and has improved over the last 30 years to be one of the finest producers Hermitage alongside Chave & Chapoutier for quality, if not price (yet). His winemaking technique is distinctly non-interventionist he uses new oak extremely judiciously and his wines are often aged for up to two years before bottling. This traditional approach gives an old-fashioned style of Hermitage which is full, well-structured and very long-lived. - Importer Note
