Bernard Faurie Hermitage (assemblage) 2005

90++ points

Rhone, France. 13%

This is fine wine, effortlessly balanced. Very impressive winemaking and viticulture. This is natural, low intervention wine.

Distinctly cool climate floral notes though this is ripe, medium bodied fruit.

Very young. It will always be an elegant wine. Needs another 5 years and may last decades after that, power and extract aren’t needed for longevity.
