RHONE VALLEY

M. CHAPOUTIER Ermitage "De l'Oree" 2002

Wine Region: Rhone Valley - France

Grape
: Marsanne

Tasting notes: The colour is an intense golden yellow, with hints of green and gold. The wine has very intense, hot shingles, toffee, very ripe, fruity lemon with floral overtones of acacia and hawthorn. The palate has a well-rounded start, full-bodied, very complex with overtones of ripe fruits, spices, and roasting. Very long in the mouth, with a fresh final note.
