Cave de Tain l'Hermitage Syrah Hermitage Gambert de Loche 2005

Member Review by Lindy Hemsley:

Already showing quite forward black fruit and cinnamon spice. Well-balanced with rounded tannin and acid. Promises to be very nice in 10 years.

  When you think Cave de Tain, your mind should instantly jump to Syrah. Syrah is the only red varietal that Cave de Tain makes into wine, making it a specialist in its production. Not only that, but it is also the leading producer of “cru” wines in the Northern Rhone Valley, with about 2,500 acres of grapes planted. Cave de Tain is a collective of about 330 growers located in Rhone Valley, France. Louis Gambert de Loche founded Cave de Tain in 1933 and became its first president. The wines produced as a part of the Cave de Tain l’Hermitage are sourced across many terroirs and domaines, including Crozes Hermitage, Hermitage, Cornas, Saint Peray, Saint Joseph, and Vin de Pays. Not only does it encompass wine produced across these regions, but it produces almost half of the wine grown in the Crozes Hermitage. Read less

Als Hommage an den Gründer und langjährigen Präsidenten Louis Gambert de Loche ist diese Interpretation eines grossen Terroirs entstanden. 22 ha in atemberaubender Hanglage im weltberühmten Hermitage-Rebberg hat er der CAVE DE TAIN vermacht. Aus dem ausgewählten Traubengut dieser Domaine keltert der Oenologe Alain Bourgeois einen Charakterwein, der von A bis Z zu überzeugen vermag. Sortentypisch, klassisch ist der Auftakt im intensiven Bouquet. Die samtige, feine Gerbstofftextur in harmonischer Verbindung mit der fruchtigen, tiefgründigen Struktur und der sortentypischen Gewürzaromatik ergibt einen komplexen, vielschichtigen und zugleich eleganten Hermitage, der im Finale ein besonderes Genusserlebnis vermittelt. Nach einigen Jahren der Flaschenlagerung offenbaren sich eine ausgewogene Einheit, für die die Appellation Hermitage zu Recht Weltruhm geniesst.
