2019 Hermitage, Domaine du Colombier
Available En Primeur
Produced from a perfectly sited plot near the top of the Hermitage hill, the flagship cuvée from Domaine du Colombier epitomises the search for purity and elegance that characterises Florent's style. A very parsimonious use of new oak, ageing in large oak foudres and some whole-bunch maceration supplement the dense core of black fruit with lifted parma violets notes, a briny, saline edge and some meaty notes on the finish. This approachable Hermitage delivers superb value.
A relative newcomer on the Tain l'Hermitage winemaking scene, having vinified and bottled his own wines since the early 1990s, Florent Viale has rapidly made a name for the estate, as a source of some of the best value reds in the Northern Rhône. These are modestly-priced wines of impressive purity and balance.
