RHONE VALLEY

M. CHAPOUTIER Ermitage "l'Ermite" 2005

Wine Region: Rhone Valley - France

Grape
: Syrah

Tasting notes: The colour is very deep garnet red, almost black. The nose has notes of black fruits with spices and ink overtones. On the palate, tannins are in the same time powerful and velvety. Smoky and pepper overtones express wonderfully the Syrah variety on granitic soil.

About the winery:
Michel is a seventh-generation Chapoutier winemaker at Tain-L'Hermitage, having acquired the family estate in 1990. Michel earned a reputation for producing wines that are highly representative of where they are grown, true "snapshots of the terroir".
