Marc Sorrel

There is much more to Hermitage than La Chapelle and, in our opinion, the most impressive, low-key producer has to be Marc Sorrel. Their flagship Hermitage Le Greal is one of the finest wines in the Northern Rhône, placing it in truly grand company indeed. Described by the Wine Advocate as "an often-overlooked source of fine Hermitage" the price point remains remarkably sensible for those buying on release, with potentially excellent returns for those patient enough to hold their wines for a few years. Marc is a very down-to-earth kind of winemaker. He doesn't do the international tastings circuit, preferring to spend his time focussing on his wines, tending to the vines and checking barrels. The results bear out his clear dedication to quality.

Marc Sorrel Hermitage Le Greal 2017 (6x75cl)

Decanter (98)

I think it's the best vintage I've ever made', says Marc, and you can see why. It's 100% whole-bunch fruit, harvested at a yield of 25hl/ha from lieux-dits Les Greffieux and Le Méal. It has resinous rosemary notes on the nose, and it's so fresh, vibrant and full of energy. The palate is beautifully concentrated, with lovely berry acidity. It's a totally natural and unforced expression of Hermitage with real length and persistence. It has slightly softer tannins than the 2015, but is just as good. So refreshing and enlivening.

Marc Sorrel Hermitage Le Greal 2018 (6x75cl)

John Livingston-Learmouth (5)

(used 228-litre cask, 17 casks this year, not had so many since 1999) deep robe. There is a bull’s blood intensity on the nose, concerted black fruits, black olives – it is sleek and profound, a real Child of the Night, is slinky, with most welcoming fruit beckoning you in. The palate engages with a wavy black fruit offer; the pleasure is sensaround, and there is naughty raciness in its svelte fruit. I find it has more hidden depths than 2017, is wholesome, and very, very persistent, flourishes on the close. It has subtleties, perhaps more than 2017, carries some Burgundian tendencies, most sexy fruit, silky and savoury, very long and sensuous. 14.1°. 2053-56 Nov 2018
