Swiveling the wine glass, this red wine reveals a high viscosity, which is evident in clear church windows at the edge of the glass. To the nose, this M. Chapoutier red wine reveals all sorts of blackberries, black currants, mulberries and blueberries.
The Le Méal Ermitage rouge from M. Chapoutier is the right choice for all wine drinkers who like it dry. However, it never appears sparse or brittle, but round and supple. On the palate, the texture of this powerful red wine is wonderfully dense. Due to the balanced fruit acidity, Le Méal Ermitage rouge flatters the palate with a soft feeling, without lacking freshness. In the finish, this youthful from the wine-growing region of the Rhône Valley finally thrills with considerable length. There are again hints of blackcurrant and blackberry. In the aftertaste, mineral notes of the slate-dominated soils join in.
