Size750MLVintage2006SKU11534Intense, bracing fresh fruit flavors, juicy notes of plum, red cherry and cherry stone, sumptuous very fine, velvety fruit tannins, this boasts lots of richness, acidity and shows considerable underlying power despite a distinct first impression of great elegance.
Size750MLVintage2005SKU5894Made in a totally different style, the masculine, backward 2005 Hermitage exhibits an inky/dark ruby/purple color along with aromas of graphite, creme de cassis, licorice, roasted herbs, and scorched earth. The minerality and tannins dominate this gamy, thick, rich 2005, which, given its tannic structure, is closest in style to a vintage such as 1995 or 1998. 95+pts Wine Advocate (2005)
Size750MLVintage2009SKU16319Another 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. 98+pts Wine Advocate (2009)
