2012 M. Chapoutier Hermitage ‘Monier de la Sizeranne’ Northern Rhone
Pairs well with venison fillet in a red wine sauce, roast beef, and mature Saint Felicien cheese.
James Suckling - "A blend of 4 climats, and there's granitic influence here. Deep-set spicy complexity is evident immediately on the nose, which displays sappy green peppers, flint and tarry, black- and red-berry fruits. The palate carries impressive depth and detail, the oak is set in neatly, and succulent and composed plum and blackberry flavors run throughout. Handy length. Drink from 2018-2030."
Jeb Dunnuck - "The 2012 Hermitage Sizeranne is drinking beautifully today, with complex notes of blackcurrants, smoked herbs, game, saddle leather, and peppery nuances. Relatively mature yet still youthful, with resolved tannins, it has a beautiful sense of elegance, terrific length, and the classic minerality that this appellation is known for. In short, it’s an outstanding Hermitage to enjoy anytime over the coming decade."
