Utterly charming and already drinkable, we are loving this lush, full-bodied beauty from a maison that made the Rhone Valley what it is today. Beautiful depths of raspberries and cherries lead the way with a subtle lift of baking spices as it rolls into a long, silky finish. Fans of the older vintages of Jaboulet’s flagship will find a friend in this beauty of a wine built for the long haul.
A superb Maison Bleue, the 2019 Hermitage La Maison Bleue seamlessly blends cherries and cassis into a purple mashup of fruit carried on rich, velvety waves of texture. Full-bodied and intense, it finishes complex and savory, adding notes of olive, clove and cedar on the long, luxurious finish.
