The grapes producing this wine come from three different vineyards: "Le Mal": this is an old fluvioglacial alluvial deposit soil with numerous shingles. "Les Murets": soils consist of granitic arena and alluvial deposits of same nature. "Chante Alouette": it is set on loess soil with a fine layer of clay and limestone.

TASTING NOTES: A wine reviewed last year, the 2012 Hermitage Chante Alouette comes from three separate parcels on Hermitage Hill; Meal, Les Murets and Chante Alouette. I rated it identically this go around, but it's such a fabulous wine I decided to include it again. White peach, white flowers, honeysuckle, brioche and tropical notes all emerge from this stunning white, and while it's not cheap, it represents a smoking value. Don't miss it.
