note: this is a review of the white Hermitage
Hermitage, Northern Rhône, France. 13.5%
This bottle is far more oxidised than it should be. But the wine itself still shows through, mellow and complex. A rich soft wine, where alcohol flavour, which I normally don’t like at all, is a small part of the character.
A Marsanne and Rousanne blend and enough to remind me that old Marsanne can be really very interesting.
