2009 M. Chapoutier "L'Ermite" Ermitage Rouge (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1072586 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Conservatively, the 2009 Ermitage l’Ermite (702 cases) needs 25-30 years of cellaring. Another monumental effort from Michel Chapoutier, it possesses copious notes of smoky asphalt, black truffles, pen ink, graphite and blackberry liqueur intermixed with hints of flowers and crushed rocks. Extremely full-bodied with abundant sweet tannins, amazing penetration on the palate and a long finish, this historic effort should age effortlessly for 50-100+ years. (RP) 98+ Inner quote mark (12/2011)

98 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark *Collectibles* This has a taut feel still, with an almost searing iron edge, but there's plenty of flesh in reserve, with plum compote, cherry pâte de fruit and anise notes that slowly fill in on the lengthy finish. Offers lots of grip too as this slowly unwinds with air, letting its iron edge stretch out even more. There's terrific spine and cut, with very impressive length. Best from 2016 through 2036. Inner quote mark (7/2012)

93-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Inky violet color. An explosively perfumed bouquet offers raspberry and cherry pie, potpourri and cola, with intense spiciness and a touch of botanical herbs. Lush, creamy and expansive on the palate, offering powerful dark berry preserve flavors and a strong suggestion of candied violet. Alluringly sweet and seamless, with excellent finishing thrust and length. Inner quote mark (2/2011)
