Description

The richness and precision of a white wine from Ermitage

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 elevated 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 comprises over 350 hectares of vineyards in the most prestigious appellations of the northern and southern Rhône Valley region.

The vineyard

A plot selection, this De l'Orée 2020 by M. Chapoutier is an Ermitage wine made from grapes from the Murets plot, which is unique in that its soil 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

Manual harvesting at full maturity. Pressing followed by cold settling of the must for around 24 hours. 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 the lees, with regular stirring of the lees.

The blend

Marsanne (100%).

M. Chapoutier’s De l'Orée 2020: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

The colour is a beautiful golden yellow, with golden and green highlights.

Nose

Intense, the nose exudes fragrances of warm stones, caramel, ripe fruit, lemon as well as savoury floral notes (acacia, hawthorn).

Palate

An ample attack precedes a complex mouth. Aromas of ripe fruit, spices and toast stretch harmoniously to a persistent and beautifully fresh finish.
