Hermitage 1989 - Domaine L. de Vallouit
About the estate L. de Vallouit:
Bottles just out from the estate! In excellent conditions of conservation and aging.
Domaine L. de Vallouit was a magnificent family estate in the northern Rhône Valley. One of the few to have vines in all the northern Rhône appellations, with the exception of Château Grillet, of course. In 2001, the estate's vines were taken over by Guigal, which incorporated them into some of its most prestigious cuvées.
About the cuvée:
The Hermitage appellation was created in 1937, the Syrah vines, from which the red wines come, benefit from a unique, essentially granitic terroir. The diversity of these soils has led to the creation of famous localities such as Le Méal or Les Greffieux.
About the 1989 vintage at Hermitage:
A grand vintage in all respects which benefited from a perfect month of September. The 1989 Hermitages are very concentrated and balanced. They have considerable aging potential.
