2016 Domaine des Rémizières Crozes-Hermitage

90 points Wine Spectator: "Charming and fresh, with light violet, white pepper and lavender notes leading the way for supple cherry and plum fruit flavors. Silky tannins and a light dusting of sandalwood show on the finish. (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's Wine Advocate: "Bottled in June, the bas ...

2016 Domaine des Rémizières Saint-Joseph

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Saint Joseph is a winner. Coming from 40-year-old vines, granite soils, and brought up in 30% new oak, it has straight-up classic notes of blackberries, crushed violets, pepper, and obvious minerality to go with a tight, medium-bodied, concentrated style on the palate. Possessing a rare level of purity and finesse in its tannin, drink this beauty any time over the coming decade." (12/2018) 91 points Vinous: "(50% new oak) Bright purple. Black and blue fruits, olive and licorice on the deeply perfumed nose. Sweet and bro ...

2016 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage Rouge

96-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I was able to taste the 2016 Hermitage from three separate tanks which are blended prior to bottling. All three samples showed brilliant purity of fruit, full body, a forward, seamless, elegant texture, and classic building minerality. This is haute couture at its finest and is pure class that could come from nowhere else. As with most 2016s, it's going to be relatively accessible in its youth, yet this is one Hermitage that's not going to hit maturity for another 8-10 years and will keep for three decades."

2010 M. Chapoutier "Le Méal" Ermitage Rouge

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the stars of the retrospective was the 2010 Ermitage le Méal. This classic vintage yielded concentrated, fresh and structured wines and the 2010 has all of these traits in spades. Giving up a massive array of liquid rock, graphite, spring flowers, cassis and black raspberries, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a tight, structured, tannic mouthfeel and bright acidity, all while still showing incredible polish and elegance. It will certainly flirt with perfection at maturity, but is all about min ...

2016 Domaine des Remizières "Cuvée Emilie" Hermitage

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Hermitage Cuvée Emilie was brought up all in new barrels. It's come together nicely and offers a classic, smoky, meaty bouquet of darker fruits, leafy herbs, saddle leather, and truffle. Inky colored, medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated, and beautifully textured, it shows more and more complexity with time in the glass as well as an alluring floral quality. It's already approachable, assuming you don't mind ripe tannins, but will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and cruise for 10-15 years." (12/2018) 93 points ...

2009 M. Chapoutier "Le Méal" Ermitage Blanc

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a warm site and a hot vintage, the 2009 Ermitage le Meal Blanc was harvested on the August 28, and aged in 100% new French oak. Flirting with perfection and a full-bore, exotic, almost over-the-top expression of Marsanne, it has less minerality than the 2010, yet more of everything else with boatloads of caramelized fruits, buttered citrus, white flowers, honey and crushed rocks all soaring from the glass. Rich, layered, exuberant, unctuous and exotic, with stunning freshness despite it's thickness and weigh ...

2015 M. Chapoutier "Les Varonniers" Crozes-Hermitage Rouge (Pre-Arrival)

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "More Hermitage than Crozes-Hermitage, the 2015 Crozes Ermitage Les Varonniers comes from a cool, west facing parcel and the same soils as the Bessards lieu-dit on Hermitage. Burning embers, ozone, saddle leather, beef blood and a liqueur of rocks bouquet gives way to a full-bodied, silky, awesome Crozes-Hermitage that's undoubtedly the greatest vintage ever for this cuvée. Give it 4-5 years of cellaring and it will keep for another two decades. Bravo! Enough can’t be said about the quality coming from the estate of Michel Chapout ...

2015 M. Chapoutier "Le Pavillon" Ermitage Rouge 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another perfect wine, the 2015 Ermitage Le Pavillon comes from the Bessards lieu-dit on Hermitage, which is pure granite soils. 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 ...

1998 Domaine Remizieres "Cuvée Emilie" Hermitage

Unique, with the subtle black fruit and vanilla notes riding into a long, slightly smoky and toasted finish. " (07/2000) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The saturated black/purple-colored 1998 Hermitage Cuvee Emilie rouge (30% of this offering emerges from Les Rocoules and 70% from l'Ermite) is an ultra-rich offering, with wonderfully sweet, jammy, blackberry liqueur, tobacco, licorice, a ...

2010 M. Chapoutier "Le Pavillon" Ermitage Rouge

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasting like the concentrated blood from an aged and grilled strip steak, the 2010 Ermitage Le Pavillon boasts a black/purple color along with creme de cassis, camphor, pen ink, white flower and lead pencil shaving characteristics in its massive, full-bodied personality. It almost defies description because of its ethereal concentration and off-the-charts extract levels. This is not for the faint of heart, or those who lack patience, as it will require 10-15 years of bottle age, and, as previously stated, will k ...

2015 Delas Frères "Les Bessards" Hermitage

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The top cuvée from Delas is the 2015 Hermitage Les Bessards, and it's always 100% Syrah from the steep, broken granite soils of the Bessards lieu-dit. Aged 18 months in 30% new barrels, its purple/plum color is followed by a huge nose of blackcurrants, graphite, toasted spice, crushed rocks and saddle leather. Powerful, massively concentrated, and tannic, it has a broad, expansive, heavenly texture, a thick mid-palate (you could almost use a fork for this beauty), and a great finish. Despite the richness level, it stays balanced ...

It is a worthy competitor to the brilliant 2009. Drink it over the next 20-25 years. (RP)" (12/2012) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky purple.

2003 M. Chapoutier "Les Varonniers" Crozes-Hermitage (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Looking first at his Crozes Hermitage, and a wine that will stand toe to toe with any number of Hermitages, the 2003 Crozes Hermitage Les Varonniers offers thrilling black fruits, saddle leather, spice and cured meat-like qualities to go with a sexy, full-bodied, and layered profile on the palate. It will continue to evolve gracefully, but there’s no reason to delay gratification and I’d enjoy this fabulous Syrah over the coming couple of years.

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.

More tight, focused and backward than the Pavillon, it's no less impressive and is pure, full-bodied, massively concentrated and focused. It’s another monumental wine from Michel Chapoutier that needs to be forgotten for 8-10 years and will have 40-50 years of prime drinking.

It offers ripe, sexy notes of crème de cassis, violets, and graphite, with subtle new oak covered by beautifully pure fruit.

2016 M. Chapoutier "Les Varonniers" Crozes-Hermitage (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "On another level, the inky colored 2016 Crozes-Ermitage Les Varonniers comes from the granite hillside just beside Hermitage hill and is more Hermitage than Crozes.

2016 Ferraton Père et Fils "Les Miaux" Hermitage Blanc

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 ...
