ABOUT THE WINE
One of the finest producers in the Rhône Valley since 1988, when Michel Chapoutier took over the long-established firm. Biodynamic principles are observed for all of their wines, while the use of new oak has been limited. The Sélections Parcellaires are all single-vineyard expressions, and include some of the most beautiful wines produced in the region.

TASTING NOTES
Brilliant Hermitage Blanc; intensely golden in colour, with ripe fruit, spice and toasty notes from time in barrel. Floral complexity, with acacia and hawthorn, and a mineral note of crushed pebbles. South-east facing, well-drained alluvial soils provide this mineral balance to the opulent complexity of the wine.

FOOD PAIRING
Rich enough for truffles, foie gras, game-birds in creamy sauces and soft, flavoursome cheese.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Often in the shadow of the supposedly more refined Roussanne grape, Marsanne is often a work-horse in Rhône whites. In this case, however, low yields and ideal terroir allows it to play a starring role, showing off the true potential of the varietal.
