About this Item

Ermitage Le Meal Rouge, 2013
3 (1 x 3) 750ml
Michel’s Chapoutier’s landholding, track record and incredible consistency from entry-level wines through to the single-vineyards is unparalleled in the world of wine. Chapoutier ranked 4th in 2019 amongst the “World's Most Admired Wine Brands“. Chapoutier is one of the oldest names in the Rhone valley. Founded in 1808 by the Calvet family, it was sold to the Chapoutier family in 1855. Today, Michel Chapoutier is the reference-point for the entire Rhône Valley, especially with their single vineyard Sélections Parcellaires. In fact, Robert Parker has praised Chapoutier’s Northern Rhône’s as some of the world finest wines.

Critics Ratings

‘A classic expression of the gorgeous, sunbaked vineyard, the 2013 Ermitage le Méal is as ripe, sexy and voluptuous as they come in the vintage. Black raspberries, jammy blackberries, licorice, toasted spice and crushed flowers are just some of the nuances in the bouquet. Full-bodied, mouth-filling with ripe tannin, plenty of mid-palate density (which can be lacking in some wines in the vintage) and with a great finish, it has the balance and texture to dish out pleasure today, but will have 25 or more years of overall longevity.’ - Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate, 97/100 (Dec 2015)

‘Bristles with energy, as the core of loganberry, raspberry and boysenberry confiture is pushed by lively, brambly structure and enticing notes of anise, singed apple wood and pain d'épices. There's a lot going on here, so give this time to settle. Best from 2019 through 2030.’ - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 96/100 (Jun 2016)
