2014 Hermitage, Greffieux Bessards, Domaine Bernard Faurie (White Foil)

Sold Out

The lower Greffieux fruit adds an approachable twist to the Calvinist solidity of the Bessards grapes. Their blend is therefore a marriage of opposites and has worked well in 2014, each of the equal shareholders taming the inclination of the other, one indulgent and amorphous, the other ascetic and rather unforgiving, with a pleasing flourish of fruit and Hermitage panache. Drink 2018-2022. Simon Field MW – Wine Buyer
