Cave de Tain Hermitage Gambert de Loche 1995

Rare, fine, pre-aged Hermitage Syrah from the Northern Rhone

The hallmark wine of the region, demonstrating Syrah’s finesse, complexity, and longevity.  This wine bears the name as a tribute to Cave de Tain’s founder, less than 6,000 bottles produced. 

Tasting:

Exceptionally deep, but soft and complex. Subtle nose of black fruits, toasty notes, developping to black chocolate and peppery.  Palate is rich and savoury with black currant, hazelnut, cloves, stunning round tannins, a concentrated and young wine - one for the cellar.
