Description

A rich and balanced 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

L'Ermite 2020 white wine by M. Chapoutier is an Ermitage wine made from a selection of old vines planted in a vineyard located at the top of the Hermitage slope, around the chapel in a hamlet called l'Ermite. This fine Rhône Valley terroir is unique due to its nutrient-poor granite soils.

Vinification and ageing

The grapes are harvested by hand when fully ripe and, after a light settling, are vinified exclusively in barrels. Following a long fermentation, the wine is aged on its lees for 10 to 12 months, with regular stirring of the lees.

The blend

Marsanne (100%).

M. Chapoutier’s Ermite 2020 white wine: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

The colour is straw yellow.

Nose

Revealing a beautiful minerality conferred by the soils, the nose blends vanilla and almond fragrances with dried fruit and lime blossom notes.

Palate

Ample and rich, the palate exudes gourmet aromas of white flesh fruits (peaches and apricots). The finish is persistent and complex.
