94+ The Wine Advocate

Scents of crushed stone accent ripe, honeyed notes of white peaches and pears, while the full-bodied palate is rich, round and mouth coating, echoing with hints of salted licorice on the slightly warm finish.

17.5+ Jancis Robinson

Ripe mouthfeel with honeyed nuts and smoky tinged. Good acidity underpins the wine and there is a waxy finish.



Domaine Marc Sorrel is a 10-acre estate in Tain L’Hermitage, in the northern Rhone Valley. The estate was created in 1928 by Felix Sorrel, and it is today owned and operated by his grandson, Marc. Marc has been making wine at the estate since 1984. The estate produces red and white Hermitage and Crozes-Hermitage. Production is very small at about 1,000 cases annually.


France, Rhône Valley, Northern Rhône, Hermitage

The Northern Rhône Valley wine region hugs the Rhône River from Vienne in the north to Valence at its southern tip. The French call the region Côtes du Rhône Septentrionales, and it is divided into eight appellations. Along with its neighbor to the south, the Southern Rhone Valley, it is famous for its big, tannic, intensely concentrated wines. Syrah is the only red grape permitted in AOC wines from this sub-region, though the Syrah can be blended with the white wine grapes Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne, depending on the regulations for each AOC. White wines are made from Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne. Of the eight appellations in the north, the most admired wines tend to come from Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and Hermitage, though there are certainly exceptional wines to be found in St. Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, St.-Peray, Crozes-Hermitage and Cornas. Along with Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne, Rhône wines are among France’s best known and most collected wines. Red wines from these appellations are notable for their signature aromas of bacon and green olives, and for their depth. Robert M. Parker, a great champion of Rhone wines, has written that “the northern Rhône produces three of the greatest wines in the world – the white wines of Condrieu and the red wines of Côte-Rôtie and Hermitage.”
