Tasting Notes

Made by top producer Cave de Tain exclusively for Tesco, this stunning northern Rhone red is genius in a bottle.

Seriously concentrated, this is made from the Syrah grape with layers of redcurrant and blackberry fruits.

One for slow-cooked stews or roasted red meats.

Storage Instructions

This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 5 years

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2007 vintage, Jancis Robinson said: “Quite a treat to find this pure, luscious northern Rhone Syrah you could already drink in so many branches of the supermarket. The Tain co-op has access to a large proportion of the firm Syrah grown on this famous hill in the northern Rhone. Dry finish but great fruit on the way there.”

Jancis Robinson - FT Magazine 08/12/2012

The Cave de Tain does a good job of extracting the spice and pepper of the Syrah grape in most of its wines and this Hermitage is no exception, a fine red with a distinctive pepper and spice perfume and attractively juicy fresh fruit spliced with cracked pepper on the palate, albeit the faintest touch rustic for the great cru of Hermitage itself.
