En Primeur Hermitage Blanc Colombier will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.
Winemaker Florent Viale continues to grow the reputation of his family’s domaine, ageing the Hermitage wines for up to a year and a half before release in larger oak barrels (tonneaux) which allows the terroir to express itself. Never using more than 20% new oak, Florent’s wines are elegant despite their power and concentration.
One of the finest wines we’ve tried from Colombier, the 2021 Hermitage Blanc shows incredibly intense aromatics of kafir lime leaf, honeyed pineapple and vanilla, while the full-bodied palate is equally voluminous. Spending one year in oak, 50% of which is new, this rich, silky and long Hermitage is nicely supported by subtle oak, and will be nearly impossible to resist in youth, though will reward a decade’s patience, and last up to two decades (or more).

En Primeur pricing is per case as specified and excludes UK duty and VAT, which will be charged at the prevailing rate when the wine is released from bond for delivery. Bonded storage is available. Onward delivery or transfer is not included and can be quoted for on request. Free delivery on orders over £100 does not apply to bonded or en primeur wines.
