Hermitage "Les Greffières" 1990 Magnum - Domaine L. de Vallouit
About the estate L. de Vallouit:
Bottles just out from the estate! After excellent aging conditions.
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, as here, Les Greffieux/Les Greffières.
About the 1990 vintage at Hermitage:
A grandiose vintage as for all the wines of the Rhône Valley. The 1990s are rich and very aromatic in Hermitage. They have an impressive aging potential.
Tasting Notes Hermitage "Les Greffières" 1990:
We tasted this cuvée in bottle format and not in magnum. The bottle was beautifully well preserved, still young despite being in its thirties. The magnum, which is the best format for laying down, should be even better. Attention, a long opening prior to the tasting will be essential.
