Professional Wine Reviews for Cave De Tain L'hermitage Hermitage Rouge Grand Classique 2014

Rated 93 by Wine Spectator
This has lush layers of fig, boysenberry and raspberry compote coursing along, inlaid with ample bramble and graphite notes for grip, picking up additional violet, anise and black tea details through the finish. Exhibits pleasant live-wire acidity underneath. Best from 2019 through 2029. 5,800 cases made
Rated 92 by Wine & Spirits
Working with a wide array of member-growers, this cooperative has access to more than 50 acres of the 345 that make up Hermitage. That’s a terrific advantage in a cool, damp vintage like 2014, and it shows in this wine. It feels bound up in itself at first, dark and chewy, a burl of wood, earth, cherries, plums and spice. With air, the wine gains loft, carried on fine-grained tannins and herbal complexity. Give it an hour in a decanter or a couple more years in the cellar, and then pour with a thyme-laced leg of lamb.

Winery Cave De Tain L'hermitage

Region: Rhone Valley

The Rhone Valley of southern France is a particularly fascinating wine region, with a history that stretches back to at least six hundred BCE, when the ancient Greeks first began cultivating vines there. The region itself is split into two distinct sub-regions, with the northern sub-region being famed for its production of exceptional Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier wines, packed full of interesting character and expressing the terroir found there. The southern sub-region is home to an enormous variety of grapes, and produces red, white and rosé wines, and some of the world's most famous and adored blended wines. The continental climate of the region is ideal for growing grapes, and the winds which blow from the Central Massif help temper the heat in the vineyards, leading to very ripe fruits holding plenty of flavor.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
