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.

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!

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.
Complex and subtle, aromas of quince, walnut, honey, ginger, acacia with a hint of linden-tree.
