Single Bottle - Magnum - 1.5 LitersStarting bid HK$3,025.00
Very solid, with a loamy frame around a core of fleshy plum, fig and blackberry flavors. A backdrop of licorice root and roasted espresso shows on the finish. A little shy on energy, this exhibits a hefty dose of toast, ample depth of fruit and a good tug of terroir. Best from 2017 through 2024. 200 cases imported.
While I wasn’t able to taste a 2013, I was able to try the 2012 Hermitage la Chapelle Blanc again. Still youthful, vibrant and fresh, it offers massive minerality to go with notions of lime, mint, almond paste and ripe apple. Full-bodied, tight, backward and crisp, give it another year or two and drink bottles over the following 10-15 years or more.
Beautiful aromas of iron, dark friut, plums, tar and dried meats. Subtle aromas. This is wonderfully refined and delicate with blueberry, slate, violet and light black-pepper character. Very refined and beautiful Gorgeous. Delicious now, or hold.
