Community Tasting Notes (6) Avg Score: 93.9 points

  • Beautiful bouquet with minerals, dark berries and meaty flavors. Same on the palate; sweet and ripe dark berries, very juicy. Beautiful acidity and round tannin with a lovely bite. Great wine with a great future. Hope to taste again around 2025. 94 – 95+ for now.

  • [From 3L] OK, now this is a pretty cool bottle of Hermitage. It smells anything but, with New World style hyper-ripe notes of raspberry jam and mango; the palate is still pretty ripe but retains a streak of minerality to it. Never hot or pruney (ie the ripeness isn't offputting a la 2003) - it will probably come together as legendary Hermitage in 10 years or so. As with many of Chapoutier's wines, I miss a little complexity/sense of place/drinkability in this - we'll see if it evolves that way

  • This is a dark wine with amazing aromas that only improved with decant. There was an exotic mix of mango and sesame and blueberry with a lovely mouthfeel and sweet fruit on the palate and long and gracious finish.

  • Un vin au profil presque Nouveau monde, que certains ont confondu avec le Cayuse tant il était un peu "over the top" et au fruité crémeux. Un vin très puissant, tout d'un bloc tannique et à la richesse alcoolique évidente. Très long. Pas trop mon genre et très étonné vu l'étiquette Chapoutier, mais ça demeure un vin très bien fait aux qualités évidentes.
