2018 M. Chapoutier "Les Greffieux" Ermitage Vieilles Vignes

SKU #1550803 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark 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. Inner quote mark (11/2020)

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Chapoutier's 2018 Ermitage les Greffieux features faint herbal notes and red raspberries on the nose. The most precocious of the 2018 Ermitage samples, it's full-bodied yet silky—almost lush and creamy on the palate, with a long, peppery-spicy finish. (JC) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

95-97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red and blue fruits, Moroccan spices, incense, candied flowers and licorice. Alluringly sweet and penetrating in the mouth, offering intense, mineral-accented cherry, black raspberry, floral pastille and spicecake flavors underscored by a core of juicy acidity. Hangs on with superb tenacity on the youthfully tannic, penetrating finish, which leaves behind sappy dark berry and floral notes. (JR) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Smoldering tobacco and warm earth notes mix in liberally with a core of steeped plum and blackberry fruit. Shows alder and cedar flashes on the finish, along with a savory edge. This is sneaky long, with a caressing feel. (JM) Inner quote mark (4/2021)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Super-youthful red fruit with full body and chalky tannins. Still feels quite disparate – the parts are all delicious, but don’t gel together yet. Growling tannins. Lots of fruit persistence on the finish. Behemothic, if that’s a word (and even if it isn’t). 18+/20 points (RH) Inner quote mark (6/2019)
