In a nutshell:
A superbly round and elegant biodynamic wine from the northern Rhône's most famous appellation.
The tiny south facing hillside appellation of Hermitage in the northern Rhône Valley sits among the most prestigious wine regions in the world. This is the home of Syrah (or Shiraz if you live upside down) and coupled with M. Chapoutier being a world renowned Rhone organic wine producer all leads onto this being a superlative wine. The smooth, round, elegant palate is full of concentrated red fruits, a delicate of hint of liquorice and soft spiciness. The gentle tannins ease you into the long finsh which highlights the ripe fruit character.
When to drink:
Certainly a wine to partner with something quite opulent; fillet of venison in red wine sauce comes to mind.
