M. Chapoutier Hermitage Monier de la Sizeranne Rouge 2010

Hermitage, Northern Rhone, Rhone Valley, FranceIt's crazy to suggest this wine is not a giant but somehow Chapoutier manages to reflect the vintage, and like Le Pavilion, there is a firmness but with restraint. The nose is a peppery, mix of black fruits minerals and curry. The attack is dry and elegant with fine-grained tannins and juicy smoky, liquorice-laced black fruits. A wonderful food wine years from its peak. Try it with roast lamb, or osso buco.Tasted: 05 March 2014Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 110.00 speculative listing - Pacific Wine and Spirits ON 100.00 AB 100.00 private wine shops Producer: M.
