About the wine

Tasting notes

Brilliant clean straw yellow. Powerful and intense aromas of white flowers, acacia honey, hawthorn blossom. In the mouth it's rich and full-bodied, with fleshy fruit and a fully realised expression of the terroir which lends this Hermitage body and strength.

Expert review

Deep yellow. Exotically perfumed bouquet of wild, herb-laced tropical and stone fruits, with notes of licorice and dried fig emerging with air; reminds me of an old Chartreuse. Deep, chewy and very rich, with gently sweet apricot, peach and dried pear flavors and notes of botanical herbs. Smoky, surprisingly nervy mineral and floral notes carry through a long, sappy, penetrating finish.

The Grape

Marsanne

Marsanne is a white wine traditionally used within a white Rhone blend, along with Rousssane, Grenache Blanc and Viognier. As a stand alone variety, this incredibly delicious grape makes wines with richness, complexity and deepness of fruit that ages extremely well. You'll find aromas and flavours of quince, orange citrus, apricot, beeswax and perfumed white florals. Beautiful wines!
