2015 M. Chapoutier "Chante Alouette" Hermitage Blanc

SKU #1319522 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The finest vintage for this cuvée I’ve ever tasted, the sensational 2015 Hermitage Chante Alouette boasts awesome notes of white peach, orange marmalade and white flowers in a rich, full-bodied, concentrated style. Coming from three different terroirs on Hermitage Hill (Méal, Les Murets and Chante Alouette), don’t miss it! (JD)  (12/2016)

95 points Wine Spectator

 Very fresh, with a honeysuckle-gilded core of white peach, melon rind and Jonagold apple notes. The beguiling finish lets hints of talc and wet stone glide through. Shows lovely purity and serious length. Drink now through 2029.  (2/2016)

92-94 points Vinous

 Light bright gold. Intense, mineral-accented white peach, pear liqueur, iodine and honey qualities on the nose; a suave floral topnote gains strength with aeration. Chewy, concentrated and focused on the palate, offering smoke-accented pear skin, peach pit and marzipan flavors that show excellent clarity and depth. The honey nuance comes back on the impressively persistent finish, which features hints of toasty lees and sweet butter.(JR)  (7/2017)

92 points James Suckling

 This shows a waxy edge with savory hay and grassy notes dominating the nose. The palate has impressive power and poise, a neat mineral thread with apple fruits and a handy texture. Finishes crisp; Drink now until 2025. Again, exclusively Marsanne here, this time from quartz-studded clay soils.  (10/2016)

Other White Wines



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
