Description

No reserve on this auction.

Parker’s early note from 2003:

“The demi-muid-aged 2000 Ermitage Chante Alouette displays aromas of lychee nuts, apricot jam, peaches, and honeysuckle in its medium to full-bodied, powerful personality. As the wine sits in the glass, notions of nuts and fino sherry also emerge. It should drink well for 10-15 years. These uncompromising offerings from a young genius are not meant for consumers who want something to drink immediately. They are the essence of bio-dynamically farmed vineyard sites cropped incredibly low, given extended fermentations with indigenous yeasts, and rarely touched until they go into the bottle unfined and unfiltered. In most vintages, the wines are not even racked off their lees, which only adds to their natural style. These are truly remarkable wines, but for most readers, patience is the operative rule as they generally need a good 8-10 years to strut their stuff.”

Average Cellartracker score of 92.7pts.
