Region: Hermitage, Rhone Valley, France
Wines from the fabled hill of Hermitage have been coveted for centuries (Thomas Jefferson was an avid fan) for their burly, deep-fruited and herbal take-no-prisoners style. The problem? Supplies are limited: Hermitage is just a single hill! We were able to find some of the excellent Domaine du Colombier Hermitage, a transparently made blend of three sites, representative of the superb 2016 vintage. Cellar this wine for a few years and raise a glass to our third president!
