Rhone Valley

The Rhone Valley, located directly below Burgundy's most southerly point, is sliced across the middle to form two major wine producing areas- northern Rhone and southern Rhone. The Northern Rhone rock star red variety is Syrah. It produces the flagship wines of Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, Cornas, and the much famed Cote-Rotie, and grows the native white grape Viognier.

With around thirteen red varieties planted alongside two native whites, Marsanne and Rousanne, understanding the wines of the southern Rhone is somewhat less simple. The three most important varieals are Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, and the most important sub-regions are St. Joseph, Cotes du Rhone, and the much-famed Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

  • M. Chapoutier Ermitage "L'Ermite" Blanc 2006

    Hermitage, France

    Sélections Parcellaires. Ermitage "L'Ermite" Blanc is the most individual statement in the Hermitage appellation, and the most prized for followers of M. Chapoutier's grandest of crus. Brilliant yellowish straw color. Complex aromas of vanilla, dried fruits, bitter almond with a hint of lime blossom. Very round and rich wine.

  • M. Chapoutier Ermitage "Les Greffieux" 2006

    Hermitage, France

    Sélections Parcellaires. Critics call this wine from M. Chapoutier's Les Greffiieux vineyard "a candidate for perfection". Black fruit and mineral aromas lead to powerful tannins with hints of stewed blackberries and an unbelievably long and elegant finish. Rated 98 points by Wine Advocate.
