2017 M. CHAPOUTIER Hermitage Chante Alouette 75cl (Rhone, France)
Style - Rich
Grapes - Marsanne
Tasting - "Light, glistening straw-yellow. Ripe citrus and orchard fruit qualities on the expansive nose, along with building floral and mineral nuances. Sappy and energetic on the palate, offering pear nectar, tangerine and honeysuckle flavors that deepen steadily on the back half. Closes with firm grip, a hint of fennel and strong, mineral-driven persistence. 93 points"

FYI: White Hermitage was rated by Thomas Jefferson as the finest white wine in all of France during his time as the US ambassador. And he would know as a voracious consumer and purchaser of the finest wines France could muster.
