M. Chapoutier Hermitage "Chant-Alouette" Blanc 2014

Marsanne | Hermitage, Rhone Valley,  France
Many do not realize Hermitage is comprised of just a few hilltops with very dense terroir. Steep southerly-facing terraces with unique microclimates drive rich complexity in the wines. In Hermitage, Marsanne is able to make some of the world's top and most long-lived whites. This is a powerful wine with a distinct finish of almond. Very elegant with good length.
