The power and the spicy finesse of a great Syrah from the Rhône Valley

The 2011 M. Chapoutier House Hermitage Le Méal is a true tribute to Syrah. It illustrates the typical character of the emblematic black grape of the Hermitage appellation, located near Tain-L'Hermitage in the Northern Rhône Valley region.

Hermitage Le Méal 2011 from the M. Chapoutier House is named after the plot where it was born, the locality "Le Méal" is famous for its hot terroir of rolled pebbles and clay. From a selection of old vines, this exceptional Hermitage reveals the personality of a grand cru from the Rhône Valley.

The elegant and charming 2011 M. Chapoutier Hermitage Le Méal from the M. Chapoutier House seduces the eye with its garnet red colour. The exceptional terroir gives the wine this captivating power that unveils a silky sensuality on the palate. It is structured with gourmet tannins that extend to give a long, pleasurable finish. A great wine from the Rhône Valley that has a promising evolution.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Similar to the '12 and showing the generosity and warmth of this site, the 2011 Ermitage le Meal is another sexy wine that's just hard to resist. Full-bodied and concentrated, it's slightly more red fruit-driven with black raspberries, crushed flowers, sweet spice and roasted herb aromas and flavors all emerging from the glass. One of the denser, more concentrated 2011s out there, it still shows the 2011 extroverted and straight-up hedonistic character and will drink well for another 20+ years.
