2022 M. Chapoutier "de l'Orée" Ermitage Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1709042 97 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This has the characteristic breadth and fat of De l'Orée, with a surprisingly bright and piercing acidic line. Rich, ripe mango, with a touch of pineapple, the alcohol and oak are both surprisingly well balanced for a vintage like 2022. Not the most mineral or fine perhaps, but very good. From 60-year-old vines in the lieu-dit Les Murets at the top of the hill on heavy, water-retaining soils. (MW) Inner quote mark (11/2023)

K&L Notes

John Livingstone Learmonth the Cradle of the Rhone: "attractive yellow; the nose carries a discreet honeysuckle, floral, rather winsome tone, a little notch of lemon peel and aniseed clarity, is a promising start, suggests elegance. The palate serves indeed an en finesse Hermitage blanc, with really precise freshness and a spearmint tone along the second half. Its fruit is crystalline, even delicate, shows peach with wild white strawberry. There is late gas pep murmuring away. From 2025, say. 2043-45." (10/2023)
