2015 Cave de Tain "Grand Classique" Crozes-Hermitage (Elsewhere $25) Top Pick!
2015 Cave de Tain "Grand Classique" Crozes-Hermitage (Elsewhere $25)

93 points Decanter: "Saturated, deep black-red in colour with a pure, exuberant and exciting scent mingling notes of smoke, bramble, blackberry, blackcurrant and redcurrant. The flavours are joyful. There’s a fruit core of singing lyricism, both vivid and fresh without being acidulous; the wine is tannic enough to give its fruit shape and gravitas but not roughness or austerity; and it has overtones which bring light and shade to the wine via faint notes of smoke, of cleansing bitterness, of the saltiness which is such a hallmark of parts of Crozes, and ...Read More »

2016 Domaine des Rémizières Crozes-Hermitage

Silky tannins and a light dusting of sandalwood show on the finish. Drink now through 2020. 2,500 cases made. (JM, Web Only-2018)" Jeb Dunnuck: "Leading off the reds, the clean, classic and nicely textured 2016 Crozes-Hermitage offers lots of darker fruits, peppery herbs, and dried earth. It's medium-bodied, balanced, has good acidity and a great finish. It’s a good value." (01/2018) Robert Parker' ...Read More »

93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Inky colored, the 2016 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine De Thalabert will check in behind the sensational 2015, but is nevertheless a gem of a wine. It offers classic blackberry and currant fruit intermixed with lots of peppery herbs, damp earth and peppery, olive aromas and flavors.

Black fruits, charcoal, powdered rock, currants and chocolate notes all give way to a big, concentrated, impressively structured barrel sample that has tons of potential. I expect the tannin will have integrated by the time this is released, but a few years of bottle age are still recommended."

Cassis, blackcurrants, crushed rocks, peppery herbs and earth all give way to a medium to full-bodied, concentrated, structured yet still elegant Saint Joseph.

The normal blend of 80% Marsanne and 20% Roussanne from the l’Ermite, Péleat, and les Rocoules lieux-dits, it exhibits a huge, opulent bouquet of buttered citrus, flower oil, orange marmalade, quince, and honeysuckle that’s to die for.

2017 M. Chapoutier "L'Ermite" Ermitage Rouge (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Decanter: "Compelling fragrance despite its youth, remarkably fruity and open for a L’Ermite wine at this stage: lavender, orange, mint and fresh blackberry. Medium to full bodied, rich and mouth-coating yet sublimely fresh. Sprightly, saline tannins, super-fine but weighty. Very well balanced, with juicy acidity and hugely long. Serious thrust and soaring energy, this is white-knuckle stuff. This was made from 70-year-old Syrah vines planted on a high bank of decomposed granite and granitic sands, lieu-dit L’Ermite.

Crushed stone and pencil shavings frame the technicolor blueberry and cassis fruit, which picks up an added licorice note. Just a wow wine from start to finish.

I've said it before, but will say it again, this is unquestionably the finest, most singular vineyard for Syrah in the world. Cassis, graphite, smoked herbs, liquid rocks and violet aromas give way to a huge, concentrated, opulent and off-the-charts beauty that just hints at its ultimate potential. I wouldn’t think about opening bottles for at least a decade, after which it will keep for 4-5 decades." (0 ...Read More »

Orange marmalade, buttered citrus, honeycomb and brioche all soar from the glass. Possessing a thick, full-bodied style, huge mid-palate concentration, and a great, great finish, it's one of the world's greatest dry whites, year in, year out, and 2016 isn’t going to break that trend."

The 2016 Ermitage Le Méal is another inky, opaque colored Hermitage and comes from one of the top terroirs in this hallowed appellation. Black raspberries, crushed flowers, white peach and hints of minerality and toasty oak all flow from this uber-rich, concentrated, utterly impeccably balanced 2016.

2017 M. Chapoutier "Le Méal" Ermitage Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Ermitage le Meal Blanc starts with refined notes of crushed stone and pencil shavings that move into a whirlwind of lush fruit, ranging from pineapple through melon and pear. It's rich, almost custardy in texture, yet it's backed by mineral notes of crushed stone and delivers awesome freshness on the long finish. It's an exhilarating ride. 508 cases produced. (JC)" (10/2018) 97 points Decanter: "Intense, vivid, sappy aromas of honeysuckle, rhubarb and almond. Full-bodied, but not heavy, with a good sen ...Read More »

2016 Domaine Paul Jaboulet Aine "Domaine de Roure" Crozes-Hermitage

93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from cooler, granite soils, the 2016 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine De Roure is a serious barrel sample that should check in near the top of the appellation. It has plenty of oak as well as terrific dark fruits, spice, and meatiness, with a full-bodied, concentrated, tannic style on the palate. The cellar is going to be your friend with this one." (01/2018) 93-95 points Vinous: "(raised in 20% new oak) Brilliant purple. Powerful, mineral-accented red and dark berry preserve, Asian spice, incense and floral pastille aromas sh ...Read More »

2016 Ferraton Père et Fils "Les Miaux" Hermitage Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "As to the two Hermitage Blanc, the 2016 Hermitage Les Miaux Blanc is made from 100% Marsanne brought up in demi-muids. It boasts a smoking nose of buttered citrus, tangerine, flower oil and wood smoke. Big, rich, concentrated and voluptuous on the palate, with beautiful density, this is a terrific white that ticks all the right boxes. It’s another 'best to date' wine from this awesome vintage and can be drunk anytime over the coming decade or more." (01/2018) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Very enticing, with a note of warm brioche ...Read More »

2016 M. Chapoutier "Les Greffieux" Ermitage Vieilles Vignes (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Chapoutier's 2016 Ermitage les Greffieux is a perfumed, elegant expression of this historic terroir. Violet and crushed stone notes perfectly complement the cedar and baking spices of new oak in framing ripe blackberries and blueberries. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated yet silky in feel, it adds savory notes of black olive and licorice on the long, mouthwatering finish. (JC)" (10/2018) 94-96 points Vinous: "Glass-staining purple. A complex, deeply perfumed bouquet evokes ripe cherry and cassis, complicated b ...Read More »

2015 Ferraton Pere et Fils "Le Reverdy" Hermitage Blanc

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More backward, concentrated and closed, yet just loaded with potential, the 2015 Ermitage Le Reverdy is—I suspect— the finest white I’ve tasted from this estate. Coming from the Beaume and le Méal lieux-dits and an even split of Marsanne and Roussanne, brought up in a mix of stainless steel and demi-muids, it has full-bodied richness, a liqueur of rocks-like aromatic profile, integrated acidity and sensational purity. It will have two decades or more of life. The quality (and number of cuvées) from this estate ...Read More »

2017 Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage Blanc

80% Marsanne, 20% Roussanne Alain Graillot founded his domaine in Crozes-Hermitage in 1985, and rapidly became one of the most in-demand producers in the Northern Rhone for his exuberant, robust, and complete Syrah-based wines. Alain owns 50 acres of 30-year-old Crozes-Hermitage vines on the flat alluvial plain between the Rhône and Isère rivers, in well-draining soils of sand, gravel, and stones. He also has two tiny parcels in St. Joseph, from which he makes a slightly fresher, more early-drinking wine than the remarkable Crozes-Hermitage that constit ...Read More »

2016 Domaine Remy Nodin "Le Mazel" Crozes-Hermitage

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Nodin's 2016 Crozes Hermitage Le Mazel isn't the most aromatic Crozes of the vintage, but it does offer ample weight on the palate; a ripe, creamy texture and supple tannins; and plenty of plum and blueberry fruit. Savory spice notes arrive on the lengthy finish, bringing welcome complexity. (JC)" (12/2017) Vinous: "Opaque ruby. Ripe black and blue fruits on the nose and palate, along with hints of violet and olive. In a plush, open-knit style that reminded me a lot of 2015. Closes smooth and smoky, with rounde ...Read More »

2016 J.L. Chave Selection "Silene" Crozes-Hermitage

92 points Vinous: "Bright violet. Expressive, mineral-tinged cherry and blackberry scents, along with hints of smoky bacon, licorice and succulent flowers. Concentrated and energetic on the palate, offering juicy, spice-laced black and blue fruit flavors that put on weight and become sweeter with air. Closes very long and sweet, showing excellent clarity and cut on the minerally, youthfully tannic finish. (JR)" (04/2018)
