Cave de Tain Hermitage Blanc 2015
Marsanne from Hermitage, Rhone, France
Pale yellow color with emerald green tint. Rich nose dominated by citrus fruits and green lemon. The second nose, more complex, reveals exotic fruits (pineapple, mango), anise and bitter almond aromas. A well balanced and fresh wine with a lemony finish - just like biting into a fresh, ripe grape.
Pair with fish cooked with a slightly creamy sauce and a touch of lemon, as well as white meats. Appetizing as an aperitif.
This wine is 100% Marsanne.
Wine Spectator - 93 points
This delivers an intense stream of ripe peach, mango and Cavaillon melon flavors, carried by lightly singed almond and brioche notes, backed by a light orange blossom accent. Shows excellent depth, range and cut. Best from 2018 through 2023.
