Chapoutier Chante Alouette Hermitage Blanc

6 bottles available

2012 Chapoutier Chante Alouette Hermitage Blanc...$79.99
A wine reviewed last year, the 2012 Hermitage Chante Alouette comes from three separate parcels on Hermitage Hill; Meal, Les Murets and Chante Alouette. I rated it identically this go around, but it's such a fabulous wine I decided to include it again. White peach, white flowers, honeysuckle, brioche and tropical notes all emerge from this stunning white, and while it's not cheap, it represents a smoking value. Don't miss it.
Rated 94/100 The Wine Advocate
Salted butter, chamomile, lemon rind and white peach notes course along, inlaid with honeysuckle and verbena notes. The long, mineral-driven finish harnesses everything, letting bitter citrus and almond accents linger. Drink now through 2022. 1,200 cases imported.
Rated 93/100 The Wine Spectator
