  • Sourced from the caves of Chapoutier in Thain-Ermitage.
    Unfortunately this is a bad wine and time has taken its toll. The say when they age the become unpredictable, close and open , become special etc etc. To our opinion and experience of trying quite a few of these wines from CdP blanc to Northern Rhone these wines are best tried relatively young and fresh. We have one more bottle of this and we doubt it will be any better. I hope we are proven wrong. 75

  • Best bottle I've had of this wonderful luscious wine. Dark golden yellow, decanted and aerated and drank over an hour. Simply wonderfully balanced, sweet nose of honeycomb, rocks, apricots, marzipan, popcorn whilst buttery and fat on the palate, no sweetness or maderization. Medium to full bodied, nice long velvety finish. Amazing bottle!

  • Duration: 3 hours
    Food: Salmon, steak
    Aroma: honeysuckle, pear, red date, hint of Flintstone
    Note: I've had a 1994 last month and this delivers pretty consistent feeling with the 94, opens with a floral aroma following hints of Flintstone and some citrus on the palate. With an amazingly long aftertaste that is both thick and sweet, this wine could match any oily and greasy food but at the same time could also pair well with decent and carefully prepared French food. I've always liked Chapoutier's whites, especially aged ones that gives just the right level of sophistication yet never too full bodied.
