Lot #213. M. Chapoutier Hermitage Vin de Paille 1990

Description: Consists of 1 Half Bottle, 0.375L
Region: France, Rhône, Hermitage.
Score: 96 RP.
"Chapoutier produced an astonishing 1990 Vin de Paille. Made from a microscopic 9 hectoliters per hectare, this wine (the grapes spend two and a half months on straw mats before they are crushed and vinified) is an unctuous, unbelievably rich, fabulously perfumed, honeyed wine with extraordinary balance for its massive size. Unfortunately, there were only 225 cases of this nectar. These wines can be expected to age for 40-50 years." Rhône Book, Dec 1996
Notes: Nicked capsule, very lightly scuffed, very lightly bin soiled, very lightly damp stained, nicked label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $120
