A very nice everyday white burgundy, especially for the price. Nice citrus fruits. Flinty, slight minerality with little to no oak overtones. Read more

This was brought by a guest for Thanksgiving - I wasn't a big fan. Very light body, lots of acidity and not much else. It wasn't able to stand up to the various flavors and rich textures of the Thanksgiving meal.

Silky and round, with dark plum, cherry and spice notes laced with judicious toast on the finish. Fresh and balanced. Grenache and Syrah. Drink now.

The ease of this wine’s vibrant dark cherry fruit is directly counter to the firmness of the stones underneath, holding the wine in an intriguing tension. A blend of 80 percent grenache with syrah, it feels earthy and real, a pleasure to drink with duck and white beans.

The 2009 Ermitage Le Meal Blanc exhibits more exotic tropical fruit (mango orange blossom and nectarine) as well as white currants. Very intense with slightly lower acid than l Oree and a rounder more corpulent fleshy mouthfeel this mind-boggling white Hermitage admirably demonstrates why in the late eighteenth century Thomas Jefferson wrote in his diary that white Hermitage was the greatest dry white wine made in France. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The 2009 La Ciboise red displays straightforward, medium-bodied black cherry fruit intermixed with garrigue, licorice, and earth. It is an attractive wine that, like the Marius, could be served slightly chilled.

Even better is the 2009 St.-Joseph Les Granits. Its opaque purple color is followed by notes of powdered rock blueberry and blackberry liqueur ink and graphite. An enormously endowed full-bodied effort with laser-like focus it should drink well for 15+ years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

A graceful, silky style, with a core of blueberry and raspberry fruit that hangs in reserve while notes of anise, spice bread and roasted vanilla caress the edges. The polished finish lets the fruit and spice notes hang nicely. Best from 2012 through 2022.


External Review

Aromas of red fruits, liquorice and grey pepper. This wine has a great structure with firm and silky tannins.

Winemaker's Notes:

Even better and a real sleeper of the vintage is the 2009 Cotes du Rhone Belleruche red Dominated by 80% Grenache with the rest Syrah and Mourvedre this wine has a deep rubypurpletinged color to the rim a big spicy peppery kirschscented nose and mediumbodied juicy flavors within triguing minerality and loads of fruit and texture This is a very serious Cotes du Rhone that should drink nicely for 34 years To Chapoutiers credit this is made completely from contracted biodynamically farmed vineyards as opposed to buying fermented juice from growers

COLOR: dark garnet-red color NOSE: aromas of very ripe black fruits MOUTH: spicy and liquorice aromas
