MONIER DE LA SIZERANNE, HERMITAGE, M. CHAPOUTIER, 2012, κόκκινο, 750ml

 

100% Syrah grape. Our Hermitage “Monier de la Sizeranne” comes from a blending of different soils from West to East: • “les Bessards”: from a granitic origin, it constitutes the “soul” of a good Hermitage. • “le Méal”: old alluvial terraces, with a lot of gravels and shingles more or less calcareous. • “les Greffieux”: silty soil with shingles.  Hand harvesting at optimal maturity. Entirely destemmed, the grapes ferment in concrete tanks. From one to two daily treadings ensure a good extraction. Temperature varies between 30 and 33°C.

The ageing is performed in oak casks between 12 and 14 months. This gives to the wine woody aromas which are a component of the bouquet. Several rackings allow a slow and natural clarification.

Tasting Notes:

COLOUR : deep garnet red, with purplish lights.
NOSE : red fruit (rapberry, blackcurrant), with a hint of liquorice.
MOUTH : good attack, round and elegant wine with concentrated and gentle tannins. The final is on blackcurrant, raspberry and spicy (pepper) aromas when it is young.
