Professional Wine Reviews for M. Chapoutier Hermitage Blanc Chante Alouette Marsanne 2014

Rated 94 by Robert Parker
A year in, year out blockbuster, the 2014 Hermitage Chante-Alouette comes from a mix of parcels on Hermitage hill and is 100% Marsanne; it spent ten months in 65% demi-muids (two- and three-year-old barrels) and 35% stainless steel tanks. Offering fabulous notes of buttered citrus, honeysuckle and a hint of pineapple, this medium to full-bodied, incredibly pure, elegant and seamless beauty opens up nicely with time in the glass, has building richness and a rock star finish. Don’t miss it.
Rated 93 by Decanter
Brilliant yellow. Intensely perfumed aromas of poached pear, orange, candied fig and jasmine take on a hint of dusty minerality. Smooth, concentrated and expansive on the palate, offering intense, mineral-tinged orchard and pit fruit flavors and a refreshing touch of bitter quinine. Finishes very long and supple, with impressive clarity and building spiciness. (Vinous)

Winery M. Chapoutier

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.
