"I tasted the 2013 Ermitage les Greffieux earlier this year and loved it...It's one of the vintage's biggest successes..." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Chapoutier owns some of the most famous plots in the Rhone, including a small group within the tiny Hermitage appellation. Coined as "Selections Parcellaires" it’s comprised of Le Meal, L’Ermite, Le Pavillon and, today’s wine, Le Greffieux. The smallest of the four, Chapoutier makes “one serious red Hermitage from it” per the Wine Advocate and that was definitely the case in 2013. Today we have a rare opportunity for you to pick up this “rock solid” gem for the lowest price of any vintage in the US!
With over 30 perfect 100-Point Wine Advocate wines under his belt (including the 100pt 2006 Les Greffieux), Michel Chapoutier is hands down one of the world's most influential, profound winemakers. He hit it out of the park in 2013 (earning another three 100 pointers in the process) and created "one of vintage's biggest successes" with his Greffieux bottling.
The Wine Advocate suggests that in 2013 "there's no denying the quality of the top wines" and the 2013 Greffieux certainly falls in that group. "For fans of graceful rather than powerhouse northern Rhône Syrahs, 2013 is proving to be an outstanding vintage." (Vinous)
Finding one of Chapoutier’s flagship reds for under $100 is a collectible steal. Finding one for the best price of any vintage is just icing on the cake! Serious Rhone enthusiasts, don’t miss out on this unbeatable deal. Cheers!
