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.
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.
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.
