M. Chapoutier 2016 De l'Orée White (Hermitage)

Cellar Selection

Wisps of tea leaves and caramelized honey swirl into freshly pressed apple and pear in this complex, elegant Marsanne. While intensely ripe and unctuous in mouthfeel, it's a remarkably pure sip brightened by soft tangerine acidity and a bristling mineral finish. Although enticing young, it should develop more earthen, honeyed complexities over the next decades. Anna Lee C. Iijima
