2015 Ferraton Père & Fils Ermitage Le Méal Hermitage Wine Tasting Note


2015 Ferraton Père & Fils Ermitage Le Méal  (Hermitage) 96

Deep, dark, concentrated, full-bodied, tannic and packed with crushed rocks, smoky red fruits, pepper, thyme and polished tannins, this will be just great, if you have patience. It is going to need at least 10 years before it starts showing its true essence.

Ferraton Pere et Fils Hermitage is usually better with 10-12 years of cellaring and should be at its best between 12-30 years of age.
