  • (100% Syrah, 13.5% Alkohol) Rubinrot, praktisch keine Alterstöne. Im Duft wunderschön, viel Syrah-Typizität hier, pfeffrige Würze, Leder, Tee, harzige Noten, sehr komplex. Im Gaumen auf den Punkt gereift, delikate Frucht, fein verwoben mit den reifen Tanninen, der Wein hat einen mittleren bis kräftigen Körper und zeigt viel Eleganz, die Säure verleiht Frische, trägt den Wein in einen langen Abgang, wo rotfruchtige Aromen und Weihnachtsgewürze nachhallen. Ab sofort bis 2033+ geniessen.

  • Another Chapoutier Masterclass. I really love this cuvee which is under rated and a bargain in the context of Chapoutier’s Ermitages (shuuut, don’t tell anyone!)
    Tasted in Magnum, opened 4/5h ahead and poured a little glass.
    Wine is singing, gaining complexity towards secondaries as it continues to open, great presence and length on the palate. A pure Syrah with a delicate barrel ageing.
    Not as profound as the 2012 tasted recently, but honestly, I can’t get enough

  • Took to the OK. Mixed berry and black plum fruit elegantly tempered by time. Elegantly spicy with subdued tannins and leathery secondary nuances. Excellent and drinking perfectly right now--so glad to have another bottle.

  • Clear bright red. Medium intense elegant nose, berry, black cherry, spice and forest floor. Dry fresh berry and plum flavours and a medium long finish.

    Pure and elegant Syrah.

  • On opening I was a little disappointed - green and not very Hermitage-like. But with a couple of hours in a decanter it had relaxed and was showing more mature leathery fruitcake character, along with a bit of raw meat. You can happily drink this now, very pleasurable, I didn't take a note as such as it came along towards the end of the meal I and I just wanted to enjoy it, which I did greatly.
