A lovely, budget-friendly wine with remarkable balance, this wine shows off the lovely, elegant terroir of Bordeaux, France - without breaking the bank.

A high-QPR (Quality to Price Ratio) wine, today’s Chateau L’Ermitage 2010 Rouge drinks well above its price class - garnering it a highly recommended from us.

Serve this wine with fattier foods. Pate or a bleu cheese hamburger come to mind.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Bright and beautiful with hues that remind us of deep red roses or roasted beets. Tall, branching tears start high up on the glass wall.

Smell:

Subdued fruit of blackberry, pomegranate and dried blueberry. Underneath these emerges a subtle aroma of roasted parsnip skin and sage.

Taste:

Well-structured with subtle wild strawberry, dried blueberry, under-ripe red berry and olallieberry. As the wine breathes, it also reveals dried currant, dusty plum, dried mushrooms and subtle thyme.

Finish:

Long, with red fruits that persist (especially at the edges of the palate). Terroir-driven with dried dark flowers.

Pairing:
