Chapoutier Hermitage la Sizeranne 2005
The name CHAPOUTIER is present in the Rhône Valley since 1808. In 1879, the distant ancestor Polydor CHAPOUTIER was the first to begin to buy vines, thus moving from the status of wine-grower of an estate to that of a viticulturist, a wine producer and a businessman. The pioneering spirit was already present in the family.
External Reviews for Chapoutier Hermitage la Sizeranne
Monier de la Sizeranne is Chapoutier's most popular Hermitage. The grapes are sourced from several vineyards from a blending of different soils from West to East. Les Bessards with a granitic soil constitutes the "soul" of a good Hermitage, Le Méal with old alluvial terraces, with a lot of gravel. And finally Les Greffieux with silty soil. Each one contributes a different character to the final blend. The Wine Spectator scored this 94 points saying "A very minerally, driven style, with a strong iron-tinged spine driving the red and black currant, coffee, loam and dark licorice notes. This is tightly wound on the finish, so cellar to let it stretch out. Best from 2010 through 2020." Limited!
