2010 Hermitage blanc l'Orlée

2010 Chapoutier Hermitage blanc de l'Orlée:
About 2500 bottles made. Towards golden. Some yellow fruits, minerals, intense, nuanced and quite refined nose, but a bit hidden behind vanilla notes from the oak. Lowish acidity, crisp minerality, intense, rich, flinty and smoky, with barrel burnt notes beside. Slightly bitter and bananas finish, slightly salty. Long. 94

"-I had a request for a 1964 and I reluctantly opened one of this old bottles but I didn't care if it wasn't good, because I wasn't the winemaker in 1964. But it was very good, we drank all the 600 bottles in one year!" Michel Chapoutier
