Maison Les Alexandrins Hermitage - 2017

AOC Ermitage



It’s rare to have new entrants into Hermitage, as the hill is divided up pretty tightly between the big names, so it’s great to see Maison Les Alexandrins bottling a wine here. And although they don’t own the vines, they did once belong to winemaker Guillaume Sorrel’s great grandfather. This is velvety in the mouth, with rich and dense aromatics. There’s such incredible density of flavour and texture - settle back and watch this develop over the next decade. This wine is the most expensive in the range, but you are getting serious complexity and ageing potential for the money.
