Tasted next to 99 Morodoree. This was much more savage and intense. Very rich and still young. Fruit and oak at the forefront (plum). Drinks well now but needs time. Not typical hermitage. Quite sweet.

A striking wine with beautiful grace and complexity. Plenty of time left to go but very impressive now. #chapoutier #lemeal #ermitage #hermitage #northernrhone #rhonevalley #syrah #ctbucklinwine

Delicious! Earthy, meaty and some integrated tannins. Trying wines like these makes me feel bad for the ones I will try after.
