From a warm micro-climate, Le Meal, (Michel Chapoutier says that the full phenolic maturity of the Syrah grapes at Le Meal can be achieved three weeks earlier than the grapes grown on the top of the appellation in the l’Ermite vineyard. Keep in mind that these two areas are within a ten minute walk of each other. This explains the French obsession with terroir, and how micro-climates can vary so dramatically.), the 2006 Ermitage Le Meal exhibits surprisingly tart acidity for a wine from such a warm site, a dense purple color, and sweet notes of boysenberries, black raspberries, blackberries, lead pencil shavings, pain grille, and spice. Medium to full-bodied, elegant, and lighter than Les Greffieux, it is tight and closed at present, but it displays the potential for 20-25 years of evolution. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 182.
The 2006 Ermitage le Meal showed a touch of dry tannin right on opening, but blossomed and sweetened up considerably with time in the glass. One of the more exotic wines in the retrospective, it offers tons of plums, toasted nut, beef blood and spice to go with a full-bodied, ripe, layered and ready-to-go style on the palate. Having just done a retrospective on the Les Greffieux last year, it's surprising to see the le Meal be the lighter weight, more evolved of these two 2006 Hermitages. Nevertheless, this is still a beautiful wine that has at least another decade or so of prime drinking. eRobertParker.com.September, 2015
