2003 M. Chapoutier Hermitage Blanc Chante-Alouette

2011/01/28
  • 2003 M. Chapoutier Hermitage Blanc Chante-Alouette – France, Rhône, Northern Rhône, Hermitage (1/27/2011)Gorgeous honey-gold colour. Aromas of paraffin, spice, meyer lemon rind, short pastry. Full-bodied, unctuous, spicy wine, with hints of rosemary oil, minerals, salt, apricot, short pastry, and warmth from the alcohol. Long finish, ~45-50s, with more meyer lemon rind, minerals, and white pepper. The texture of this wine has always been what I’ve loved about this wine. Once again, it didn’t disappoint. I don’t see this wine improving. Drink now. (93 points)

    I drank my last bottle a couple weeks ago. Fleshy and spicy. Made the sides of my tongue almost curl. I also didn’t see it improving so drinking it was the right choice.

    The white wines of Hermitage are among the most seductive in the world. I’m getting thirsty just reading about this one. Thanks for the note!
