2019 Ermitage 'Le Méal' Blanc, M. Chapoutier
Available En Primeur
"A rich and textural style with a gently smoky element running through it. Fresher than de l'Orée this year, but still massively rich and concentrated with a long finish. Touch of tomato leaf and tangy acidity - a lively style, like a fat man that can dance. 70% aged in demi-muid; 15% new oak, the rest is second- or third-use barrels. The remaining 30% is aged in stainless steel."
96pts, Matt Walls, www.decanter.com
It is hard to know where to start when discussing Michel Chapoutier. He is without question one of the world's greatest winemaking forces and though he holds vineyards around the world, it is back home in the Northern Rhone where the shining epogees of his art burn brightest. His Selection Parcellaires which showcase the greatest terroirs under his ownership are simply awe-inspiring. I have to say Robert Parker got it so right when he said "Michel Chapoutier has through his genius, the faith of his convictions and backbreaking attention to detail in his vineyards and in the winery ...become a beacon of inspiration and quality for the entire world. In short, every wine consumer in the world should admire his accomplishments. We urge you to experience here his exceptional 2019 releases.
