Ermitage Rouge "L' Ermite" M. Chapoutier Trocken A.o.c. Frankreich Rhône /Td Hermitage M. Chapoutier 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The Chapoutier family have been making wine in the Rhône Valley since 1808, but it is since 1990 when Michel Chapoutier came to the helm that the wines really began to speak of their origin. Michel Chapoutier’s viticultural vision is highly impressive. His dedication to understanding each parcel of land and allowing it to make the best natural wine it can is breathtaking. He has worked tirelessly to improve every practice in his company investing in his staff as well as in the winery and vineyard - much of his estate is now farmed biodynamically. Indeed he has also created dynamic projects outside of the Rhône, examples of which can be found here from Roussillon, where he sought old vines and Australia, where his particular interest was the soil. This entire range is the fruit of extensive research and Michel Chapoutier’s labour. This exceptionally summery dry Rosé made wholly from selected Cabernet Franc vines offers a wealth of raspberry fruit and a fresh, leafy characters. Have a glass on your terrace as an aperitif or enjoy it with a meal. This dry rosé is a typical Cabernet Franc. It goes perfectly with raw vegetables, salads and grilled meat - the perfect summer wine!

M. Chapoutier:
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.

<p>This wine is a sweet dark red that is rich in tannins. The flavor is primarily cherry with other darker fruits, with a long, full-bodied finish that leaves its drinker satisfied.&nbsp;</p>
