Maison Les Alexandrins Hermitage - 2015

AOC Ermitage



Opaque ruby. Assertive blackberry, licorice candy, olive and incense scents, along with a potent floral quality that builds with aeration. Sappy and broad in the mouth, offering concentrated dark fruit liqueur, spicecake and floral pastille flavors and a hint of bitter chocolate. Closes with repeating floral and dark berry character, harmonious tannins and excellent persistence.

The 2015 Hermitage offers a ripe, voluptuous style in its blueberry and cassis fruits as well as more nuanced violet, crushed rocks, and cured meat aromatics. This medium to full-bodied, rounded, nicely concentrated Hermitage has sweet tannin and an already approachable, forward style.
