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

In southern France, one of the primary wine regions responsible for the production of a fine and varied range of wines is the Rhone Valley. Split into two large sub-regions, this expansive valley benefits from micro-climates which allow the wineries to grow a vast array of fine grape varietals. The northern region is the more limited one in regards to the amount of varietals grown, focusing predominantly on raising excellent quality Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier vines for their distinctive and elegant range of wines. The southern region, on the other hand, has a beautifully Mediterranean climate, and is home to dozens of grape varietals which are used to produce white, red and rosé wines, alongside some of the most famous and widely loved blended wines in the world.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
