2018 Domaine des Bosquets "Réserve" Gigondas (Elsewhere $45) (Elsewhere $45)
Top Pick!
95 points Decanter: "The original blended Domaine des Bosquets Gigondas is now available in two cuvées: Font des Bosquets (young vines, shorter ageing, no oak) and Réserve (older vines, 14 plots vinified separately including fruit from the top single vineyard sites, maturation in different types of oak for 18 months depending on the variety). The result is an extraordinary exercise in elegance, beautifully silky tannins and deeply vinous fruit. This is long, shapely and tapered with depth, freshness, elegance, and a seamless character. If the alcohol was...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Crozes-Hermitage Cuvée Christophe is one of the flagship releases from this estate. It always has a modern style, yet I never feel it loses any classic Northern Rhône character. Deep blue/purple, with a beautiful nose of cassis, spiced meat, pepper, and graphite, it's medium to full-bodied and has integrated background oak, plenty of mid-palate depth, and a great finish. It shows the ripe, sexy style of the vintage yet has acidity and tannins. " (11/2020) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Sprays of cinnamon, clove and cedar a...

90-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Crozes Hermitage les Pierrelles made for a great start to my visit at this standout estate. It's grapey and intense, with hints of cedary wood accenting blueberry and blackberry fruit. It's full-bodied and supple, finishing lush and even a bit warm. It should be a lot of fun to drink as a young wine. (JC)" (01/2020) K&L Notes: The roots of the Belle family run deep in Hermitage and extend back to the 18th century when the family began acquiring vines in the region. When descendant Louis Belle assum...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The all-Marsanne 2018 Crozes Hermitage Roche Blanche comes from 70-year-old vines in Larnage, barrel-fermented and aged in 25% new oak (the other 75% goes into second-fill barrels). There's a gentle hint of caramel or honey on the nose, but the bulk of the aromas and flavors are ripe pear, melon and citrus notes. Full-bodied and creamy in texture, it turns briny and zesty on the lingering finish. I adore these wines in their opulent youth, but adventurous souls may want to put a bottle or two away for up to a dec...

2017 Domaine Belle "Cuvée Louis Belle" Crozes-Hermitage
Top Pick!
93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Crozes-Hermitage Cuvée Louis Belle is a winner. Lots of black raspberries, toasted spice, new leather, and savory peppery notes emerge from the glass, and it's ripe, rounded, and sexy on the palate, with light tannins and plenty of upfront accessibility. It should keep for at least 7-8 years. I always love tasting through the releases from Domaine Belle, and they always show classic yet clean, pure profiles that are a joy to drink. While the domaine is located in Crozes Hermitage, they have small holdings in Hermitage an...

2018 Domaine Belle "Cuvée Louis Belle" Crozes-Hermitage (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
New!
95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Rivaling the 2015, if not even better (time will tell), the 2018 Crozes-Hermitage Cuvée Louis Belle is a rock star of a Crozes-Hermitage, revealing a dense purple color as well as fabulous crème de cassis and blackberry fruits interwoven with peppered beef, violets, new leather, and flowers. The real deal, it's concentrated and full-bodied, with wonderful tannins, flawless balance, and a great finish. It has a pure, polished, almost modern edge, yet it brings plenty of background meaty, bloody, black olive notes with time in the g...

94 points Vinous: "Opaque, shimmering ruby. Smoky, mineral-accented black and blue fruits on the nose, joined by hints of olive, licorice and pungent flowers that build in the glass. Supple and weighty in the mouth, offering energetic, spice-tinged blackberry, boysenberry and violet pastille flavors that become sweeter and livelier with air. The floral note carries strongly through the finish, which shows outstanding persistence and sneaky, harmonious tannins. This fruit is sourced from Le Méal, Greffieux and Murets. 20% whole clusters and raised in neut...

2017 Domaine Paul Jaboulet Aîné "Domaine de Thalabert" Crozes-Hermitage
Top Pick!
94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "This terroir always delivers a wild, opulent, gamey style of wine, and the 2017 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert doesn’t disappoint. Loads of chocolaty black fruits, ground pepper, truffle, and smoked game, as well as a hint of black olives, emerge from the glass, and it’s medium to full-bodied, has a rocking texture, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It’s a classic example of this wine and terroir." (12/2019) 92 points James Suckling: "This has a very attractive feel in 2017. Sanguine aromas of chocolate, iron and dark ber...

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Crozes-Ermitage Les Varonniers is another Hermitage look-alike with extraordinary notes of blackcurrants, toasted spice, new saddle leather, burning embers, and bacon fat. With full-bodied richness, awesome depth of fruit, and building tannins, it will mostly likely be the wine of the vintage from Crozes Hermitage." (12/2019) 94-96 points Vinous: "Highly perfumed, mineral-accented black/blue fruit liqueur, incense and potpourri aromas take on exotic spice and licorice nuances with aeration. Deeply concentrated but li...

2019 Domaine Belle "Roche Blanche" Crozes-Hermitage Blanc (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
New!
94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "More aromatic and exotic, the 2019 Crozes-Hermitage Roche Blanche ratchets up the intensity and offers a classic nose of quince, green almonds, brioche, and white flowers. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and wonderfully textured, it has a solid sense of freshness and purity as well as an almost Hermitage Blanc-like stature and depth. It should keep for a decade, although I would lean toward enjoying bottles over the coming 4-5 years."

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the three single vineyard Hermitage Blancs, these are all perfect wines yet offer distinct characters. The 2019 Ermitage De L’Orée comes from more limestone soils in the Les Murets lieu-dit, on the eastern side of the appellation and was brought up in 15% new demi-muids. It reveals a vivid gold hue to go with gorgeous honeyed peach, white currants, quince, crushed stone, and white flower-like aromas and flavors. This full-bodied white has terrific concentration, a rich, layered mouthfeel, beautiful acidity, and a finish...

92 points Decanter: "From Caroline Frey, also of Bordeaux’s Château La Lagune, this has a savoury nose and a lively blackcurrant and berry palate boasting black pepper spiciness. Serious, but smooth and supple, and ever so easy to drink. (GH)" (03/2020) Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Crozes-Hermitage Les Jalets Bio is a charmer, with a soft, forward yet elegant style. It has plenty of Northern Rhône earthy dark fruits, pepper, and truffle, and is ideal for drinking over the coming 4-5 years." (12/2019) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made in a fruit-forward ...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The richest and most fruit loaded of the trio is the 2019 Ermitage Le Méal Blanc, which comes from a warmer terroir. This killer Hermitage Blanc has a vivid gold hue as well as a crazy good nose of quince, honeyed currants, acacia flowers, spice, and orange marmalade. It doesn't have the minerality of the L'Ermite (and to a lesser extent, the De l’Orée) yet has a more opulent, fat, unctuous style that's still flawlessly balanced and remarkably pure. This is another magical Hermitage from Chapoutier that does everything right. I f...

A big, rich, powerful wine, it has plenty of classy oak as well as ripe blue fruits, scorched earth, graphite, chocolate, and assorted meatiness to go with a full-bodied, rich, concentrated style on the palate. Displaying more density than the Cuvée Louis Belle, it needs 3-5 years of bottle age and will keep for 15-20 years. It's up with the crème de la crème of the vintage."

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A powerful, full-bodied, straight-up awesome wine, the 2018 Hermitage from Domaine Belle comes from the more limestone soils of the Les Murets lieu-dit and spent more than two years in barrel. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a smorgasbord-like array of kirsch, jammy blackberries, acacia flowers, violets, ground pepper, and cured meats. With full-bodied richness, a rich, opulent, incredibly sexy texture, sweet tannins, and a great finish, we're in blockbuster territory, and along with the 2017, it's the finest Hermitage I...

2018 M. Chapoutier "Le Méal" Ermitage Rouge (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From one of the warmer terroirs on Hermitage Hill, the 2018 Ermitage Le Méal was all destemmed and vinified in concrete, followed by 18 months in 20% new demi-muids and barrels. It's unquestionably the ripest, most opulent of the single vineyard Hermitage and sports a dense purple/plum color as well as powerful notes of black raspberries, currants, camphor, cured meats, acacia flowers, and violets. Rich, concentrated, and full-bodied, it builds beautifully on the palate, has a ripe, expansive texture, sweet tannins, and a rocking ...


98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Cut from the same cloth, the 2017 Hermitage Blanc is stunning stuff, and Chave lovers should unquestionably have bottles of this in the cellar. Bottled in August of this year, its medium gold hue is followed by a mammoth bouquet of quince, flower oil, buttered almonds, and brioche. Every bit as good on the palate, it’s full-bodied, has a stacked mid-palate, flawless balance, and incredible minerality as well as length on the finish. It’s insanely good today, and while this cuvée can shut down, I wonder if this ever will. My money ...

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Sun-drenched blackberry and cassis flavors are accented by hints of vanilla and olive tapenade in this full-bodied, voluptuous Syrah. It’s a richly extracted red matured for 12 to 16 months in a combination of new and one-year-old oak but maintains a fresh, mineral spine and lifting acidity throughout. It’s ready now but should drink well through 2028.

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2006 Ermitage L’Ermite is more focused and reserved compared to the Pavillon, offering beautiful crushed rock-like minerality as well as a massive perfume of smoked meats, black currants, licorice, and Asian spices. It has awesome depth of fruit and concentration, perfect balance, and a great finish, and is another killer Hermitage. This beauty is just now at the early stages of its drink window and has another 3-4 decades of life ahead of it." (03/2019) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More taut, focused and chisel...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Readers wanting to understand pure granite soils need to taste the inky blue/black-colored 2016 Ermitage L’Ermite, as just sticking your nose in the glass is enough to instantly transport you to this magical hillside. Crème de cassis, smoked earth, gunpowder, liquid rocks, and graphite all emerge from this deep, hugely concentrated, massive wine that has awesome depth and richness, building tannins, and vibrant acidity as well as a monster finish. It needs a decade of cellaring and will keep for half a century. This is what you c...

This puppy is locked and loaded on the palate, with a huge, rich, mouthfilling style, ripe tannins, and a blockbuster of a finish."

96-98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the single vineyards, the 2019 Ermitage Les Greffieux is packed with potential, offering lots of cassis and black raspberry fruit as well as notes of bouquet garni, truffly earth, spice, and pepper. With building tannins, full-bodied richness, and a ripe, multi-dimensional texture, this powerful yet also elegant 2019 will benefit from 4-6 years of bottle age and cruise for 20+ years in cold cellars."

The 2015 has all the hallmarks of a great vintage with its huge bouquet of quince, toasted almonds, brioche, liquid rocks, and honeysuckle as well as touch of licorice. Sensationally concentrated, opulent, and multi-dimensional on the palate, it has bright acidity and an awesome sense of minerality that keep the wine chiseled and focused on the palate. It h...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2019 Hermitage Blanc is a 60/40 split of Marsanne and Roussanne that was brought up in plenty of new barrels. Its medium gold hue is followed by a great nose of honeyed lemon, quince, crushed stone, and bitter almonds. It shows more butter and toasty notes with time in the glass and is just a classy, rich, complex Hermitage. Full-bodied on the palate, with plenty of viscosity paired with notable freshness, it's geared for the dinner table and will keep for 15 years or more in cold cellars."

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Lastly, the 2016 Ermitage Le Méal is the top wine from Ferraton, and rightly so, as it’s a magical wine in 2016. Rocking notes of black raspberries, blackberries, toasted spices, tapenade, and dry aged beef all emerge from the glass, and it hits the palate with a wealth of material yet stays balanced, layered, and seamless. It's a sensational wine that's up with the top wines of the vintage. Hats off to the team at Ferraton for this remarkable wine as well as their full lineup of wines in 2016."

95 points Decanter: "Unsurprisingly, at this early stage the oak here is easily perceived, but it's a balanced wine and the rich, concentrated fruits will harmonise in time. It's a thunderous Hermitage that makes a big statement, resonating long with a good sense of energy. It's spiced and lifted on the finish and has bold, ripe, textural tannins. This will be good.

Thrilling crème de cassis, gunflint, acacia flowers, violets, and spicy nuances give way to a full-bodied, powerful, yet elegant Hermitage that has incredible class in its tannins, flawless balance, and the depth and length to evolve for 30+ years."

It's a more chiseled, backward (which is usual) wine that has intense white currants and stone fruits as well as brilliant honeysuckle, licorice, and celery seed nuances, with a liqueur of rocks-like minerality.

Still with a little blackcurrant and raspberry fruit, this has spicy, savoury faces and a gruff, grunty element. It's still full in body but the tannins are fading now, whereas fresh acidity remains, and it's sinewy in texture, reminiscent of an old man's musculature. It's rounded and fruity on the palate, with plenty of nutmeg, cinnamon, burning fireworks and woodsmoke, joined by a little truffle...

This beauty has closed down since bottling and will need considerable bottle age, but it’s a beauty.

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Its dense purple color is followed by a smorgasbord-like array of black raspberries, smoked game, bouquet garni, violets, and high-end leather. Ripe, sexy and textured on the palate, it still has a weightless mouthfeel, building tannins, and a great finish. It's not quite as massive or concentrated as the 2006, but it's certainly a gorgeous Hermitage. Forget bottles for 4-6 years and enjoy over the following two decades."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Starting off the 2011s, both of which were tasted out of bottle numerous times, the 2011 Hermitage Domaine de Tourettes is another blockbuster from this producer. Full-bodied, rich, layered and voluptuously textured, it offers up a beautiful bouquet of smoked herbs, leather, ground pepper and assorted meaty nuances that are grounded by a rich core of cassis and darker berry fruit. While a big wine, it has remarkable freshness and purity, serious mid-palate depth and silky tannin, all of which allow it to dish out loads of pleasure, even now. (JD) 95+" (12/2013)

Bid on this bottle of 1990 Paul Jaboulet Aîné "La Chapelle" Hermitage (100JD, 100RP, 98JS, 97WS, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1990 La Chapelle is sexy and opulent. I had the 1990 at the Jaboulet tasting, and again out of a double magnum three months ago. On both occasions it was spectacular, clearly meriting a three-digit score. The modern day equivalent of the 1961, it deserves all the attention it has garnered. The color remains an opaque purple, with only a slight pink at the edge. Spectacular aromatics offer up aromas of incense, smoke, blackberry fruit, cassis, barbecue spice, coffee, and a touch of chocolate. As it sits in the glass, additional nuances of pepper and grilled steak emerge. (RP)" (06/2000)

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage (97DC, 95JG). Decanter: "The 1985 vintage brought a lot of people back to the region', says Jean-Louis Chave, and this wine demonstrates why. It has a strong sense of sweet decay to the aromatics, with earthy raspberry and kirsch. It's full-bodied with intense acidity just poking out a little now, but helping to hold it up where the tannins have started to fray. It's still bright and juicy with intense raspberry on the palate along with autumn leaves. (MW)" (06/2019)

Coming from the granite soils located around the Chapel on the top of Hermitage hill, it's always the most tight, backward and structured of the releases, even more so than the Pavillon, which always seems to have another layer of sweet fruit to me. The 2012 is deeper and richer than the 2011, yet as with most 2012s, it more approachable and forward than the 2010 (and 2009 in this case). Exh...

Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Hermitage Cuvée Emilie comes from the Les Grandes Vignes region of Hermitage (a small part is from Les Rocoules) and was brought up in 100% new French oak. Its inky purple color is followed by sensational notes of charcoal, burning embers, blackberry liqueur and graphite. A huge, rich, and enormously concentrated wine, it has sensational mid-palate depth and stays fresh and lively on the palate, with a firm, concentrated, age-worthy style. It's certainly not for instant gratification and is going to need time. Forget bottles for a good 7-8 years.Unquestionably one of my favorite estates in Crozes-Hermitage, Domaine des Remizières is run by the Desmeures family, with Emilie Desmeures making the wines and her father Philippe managing the vineyards.
