Ferraton Pere et Fils Ermitage Le Meal 2003 / 750 ml.

Item#: 26866

SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - May 15, 2006
Shows the exotic ripeness of the vintage, with a blast of blackberry and boysenberry confiture aromas and flavors, quickly followed by mocha, vanilla bean and dark coffee notes. Dark finish has tons of grip and smoky toast, leaving a broad, rather than precise impression. Best from 2008 through 2025.
RP91+91–94 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 1st Dec 2004
The 2003 Hermitage Le Meal Estate’s dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by aromas of gun flint, crushed rocks, black currants, and acacia flowers. This is an elegant yet medium to full-bodied Hermitage with significant character as well as length. Anticipated maturity: 2009–2025.

Where It's From

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
