Description

A structured and gourmet Ermitage wine by M. Chapoutier

The estate

Established since 1808 in Tain-L'Hermitage, M. Chapoutier is an elite reference among fine Rhône Valley wines today.

Winemaker and wine merchant, Michel Chapoutier has successfully brought this family-owned business to the very top. The wines by Maison Chapoutier are renowned by the finest connoisseurs from all around the world for their refinement and high quality. A man of many talents, Michel Chapoutier holds the world record for 100/100 scores awarded by the American critic, Robert Parker. Mathilde, Michel Chapoutier's daughter, has taken over the running of this iconic house, which has over 350 hectares of vineyards in the most prestigious appellations of the northern and southern Rhône Valley region.

The vineyard

This plot-selection Ermitage De l'Orée by M. Chapoutier is made from grapes that stem from the Murets parcel. This plot’s soil is unique as it is composed of very old fluvio-glacial alluvium. These old vines, 60 to 70 years old on average, are renowned for their low yields, which produce high-quality wines.

Vinification and ageing

Hand-picked when fully ripe. Pressing followed by cold settling of the must for approximately 24 hours. Around 50% of the wine is vinified in demi-muids with regular stirring of the lees and 50% in vats. This wine is aged for 10 to 12 months, including 6 months on lees with regular stirring.

The blend

M. Chapoutier's 2018 De l'Orée is a 100% Marsanne.

M. Chapoutier’s 2018 De l’Orée: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

The expression of reduction, a typical feature of young Ermitage wines, gives way to a palate that gradually reveals its tension and vivacity. A powerful attack precedes a palate that seduces with its smoothness along with its delicious notes of struck match and toasted sesame seeds. The persistent finish is marked by a fine bitterness.

Cellaring

M. Chapoutier's 2018 De l'Orée can be cellared for several decades to express its full range of aromas.
