2014 Hermitage Rouge “La Pierrelle”

Barruol / Lynch

2014 Hermitage <i>Rouge</i> “La Pierrelle” Barruol / Lynch - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



Great Hermitage is a rare bird nowadays as international styles, high prices, and a virtual monopoly by a select few large houses have rendered this great appellation inaccessible to most. The goal of the Barruol/Lynch collaboration, then, is to evoke the legendary Syrahs of a bygone era via studious selection of vineyard site and rigorous respect for traditional production methods, such as whole cluster fermentation and long élevages in neutral wood. This Hermitage is true to its school: deep, smoky, intensely fragrant, powerful, and fine-grained, with a regal presence on the palate. It can be enjoyed young with some decanting, yet promises to blossom into a spectacular expression of this most exalted slope. –Anthony Lynch
