TASTING NOTES

"Chapoutier's brilliant 1999 Ermitage Le Méal is essentially a liqueur of white Hermitage. Notes of pear liqueur intertwined with fino sherry, peaches, minerals, nuts, and licorice are offered in an amazingly concentrated, super-extracted style that manages to be delicate as well as precise. This is a 40-50 year dry white, that will undoubtedly close down in 3-4 years and re-emerge a decade later. Along with Gerard and Jean-Louis Chave, Chapoutier is producing the finest expressions of white Hermitage. His single vineyard cuvées are to die for if you like these eccentric, idiosyncratic, mammoth dry whites." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #140

"Impressive richness and flavors in this white, which is full-bodied and delivers some beeswax, butter, honey and mineral character. Full-bodied, clean and pure, with a lingering finish. Drink now through 2005. 665 cases made." Wine Spectator
