Tasting Notes

90% Marsanne, 10% Roussanne from 1928, 1930s, early 1950s on Rocoules, fermented, raised 4-5 year 228-litre oak casks 16-18 months, from 2007 20-25% new oak used, 600bts made JLL

Ripe mouthfeel with honeyed nuts and smoky tinged. Good acidity underpins the wine and there is a waxy finish. Hard to judge given it is so unfinished but real potential here. Drink: 2025-2035. 17.5++/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
