Tasting Notes:

This has a sleek and fresh feel, with red currant and raspberry coulis notes melding with light violet, cedar and tobacco accents on the finish. A cedar twinge peeks through at the end, leaving a slightly grainy impression. Drink now through 2029. 250 cases made, 100 cases imported.

Tasting Notes:

The 2016 Hermitage La Maison Bleue comes from the alluvial soils toward the eastern side of the appellation. A representative blend showed a bit of toasty character but also plenty of supple dark fruit and a rich, velvety texture. It should be ready to drink shortly after release and drink well for a decade or more after that.

Tasting Notes:

The 2016 Hermitage La Maison Bleue (2,000 cases) comes from vines on the eastern side of the appellation and more sedimentary and limestone soils. This deep ruby/purple-colored beauty gives up loads of black raspberry, toasted spiced, incense, and crushed rock aromatics. This flows to a ripe, sexy, medium to full-bodied Hermitage that has moderate tannins, a layered, beautifully pure, elegant, even charming texture, and a great finish. It's already approachable yet will have 10-15 years of prime drinking.
