Parkers Wine Advocate: Attractively bright and fresh on the nose, the 2016 Ermitage le Meal is full-bodied yet creamy and supple in feel. Because of its greater level of ripeness, Chapoutier explains that it's aged in 50% demi-muids to lessen the oak influence, and indeed the wine isn't cedary at all. Espresso and mocha shadings give a savory cast to the bold blackberry fruit, while the texture turns to pure velvet on the long finish.

Beskrivelse

The annual tasting session at the Chapoutier offices in Tain l'Hermitage is a half-day marathon, this year covering 50 wines under the M. Chapoutier label, plus others in various partnerships. It's a testament to Michel Chapoutier's dogged determination to wring the best out of his various vineyard holdings by delving down into micro-vinifications of various parcel selections, not just in Hermitage, but in the other Northern Rhône appellations as well. Yet while drilling down, Chapoutier keeps the big picture in focus as well, pointing out that climate change is having an impact in Cornas. "The oldest slopes are starting to be too hot," he said. Meanwhile, he's developing vineyards in the higher reaches of the appellation. In his white wines, he's trying to keep a big portion of the carbon dioxide from fermentation in the wines. "CO2 is like salt in food," he said. "It brings out the minerality." Finally, Chapoutier is clearly pleased with his 2017 reds, which look to be developing nicely in the cellar. "It's got more concentration than 2016 but bright aromatics," he said. "It's a good balance between 2015 and 2016."

Côtes-du-Rhônes vinmarker følger Rhône-floden fra Vienne i nord til Avignon i syd, en næsten 200 km lang strækning. Rhône er især et rødvinsområde, og det er vigtigt at skelne mellem nord, hvor Syrah-druen er den fremtrædende, og syd hvor Grenache er mest udbredt. Côtes-du-Rhônes hvidvine er bestemt også værd at stifte bekendtskab med. De laves i nord på druerne Rousanne, Marsanne og Viognier og i syd især på Grenache Blanc, Clairette og Bourboulenc.
