Lot #690. M. Chapoutier Hermitage Le Méal Rouge 1999

Description: Consists of 3 Magnums, 1.5L
Region: France, Rhône, Hermitage.
Score: 98 WE.
"Chapoutier's selections of the best parcels of vines in Hermitage are set to become legendary. Sold under the ancient spelling of the appellation name (Ermitage), they represent the epitome of the power and concentration that lies behind the reputation of the appellation. This cuvée is the best of the collection, with its brooding, opaque character, suggesting rather than revealing power at this stage. Age it until your new-born baby is old enough to drink, and it will be just about ready." Wine Enthusiast, 6/1/2002
Notes: Very lightly scuffed labels.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,200
