Chapoutier Hermitage la Sizeranne 2011, 750mL (WA92, ST91, WS92) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Chapoutier Hermitage la Sizeranne

750mL

Vintage: 2011
Region: France--Rhone--Hermitage
Appellation: Hermitage

WA92, ST91, WS92
Rated 92 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `Moving to the reds, the 2011 Ermitage Monier de la Sizeranne doesn`t pull any punches and dishes up sexy, voluptuous levels of black cherries, raspberry, spice, dusty rock and crushed flowers. Medium to full-bodied, textured and with low acidity, it is distinctly delicious and hard to resist.?` -- Jeb Dunnuck in Issue #210 of the Wine AdvocateMore information about this producer: `This was an incredible tasting with Michel Chapoutier and his second hand man, Pierre-Henri Morel. Certainly one of the success stories in wine, which Robert Parker does a fabulous job of detailing in Issue 204, this estate goes from strength to strength in just about every appellation in the Rhone Valley. Looking specifically at Hermitage, Chapoutier owns a massive 64 acres, mostly on the famed Bessards lieu-dit, yet also with significant portions on Le Meal, L`Ermite and Les Greffieux, with smaller portions in the Beaume and Murets lieux-dits. From this he fashions five reds (Monier De La Sizeranne, Les Greffieux, Le Meal, Le Pavillon and L`Ermite) and four whites (Chante Alouette, Cuvee de l`Oree, Le Meal Blanc and L`Ermite Blanc), all of which are brilliant wines, with the best ranking up alongside the top wines in the world. In addition, his Saint Josephs (Les Granits and Le Clos) are some of the leading wines of the appellation (along with Guigal`s Vignes de l`Hospice and a few others), and his Cote Rotie La Mordoree, which comes from his 12 acres (split between the roughly defined Cote Blonde and Cote Brune regions), is always a classic example of the appellation. I was also able to taste through a full lineup of his Languedoc and Roussillon releases, all of which were impressive. I`ll review those wines in my 2014 coverage on those regions. Looking at the 2011 whites, these were all tasted by Robert Parker last year, but since I tasted through the lineup, I opted to include reviews here as well.`
