2017 Domaine des Rémizières "Cuvée Christophe" Crozes-Hermitage
Top Pick!
93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The only 2017 presented, the 2017 Crozes-Hermitage Cuvée Christophe comes from older vines (65- to 70-year-old vines) and was brought up in 70% new French oak. Its saturated purple color is followed by a ripe, powerful bouquet of blackberries, blackcurrants, ground pepper, saddle leather, and leafy herbs. With subtle background oak, full body, ripe tannins, and terrific balance, it's a big rich, stacked Crozes Hermitage that will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for a decade or more. 93+" (12/2018) 92 points James S...

2017 Domaine des Rémizières Crozes-Hermitage
Top Pick!
90 points Wine Spectator: "A bright, racy style, with a beam of violet-infused cassis and cherry fruit flavors laced with a subtle chalky spine. Offers a deliciously unencumbered finish. Drink now through 2020. 2,500 cases made, 400 cases imported. (JM)" (11/2018) K&L Notes: The Desmeures family of Domaine des Remizières are fourth-generation winemakers who originally sold grapes to the local cooperative. After completing their winery in 1974, the family began production at their new property. The estate is now managed by Phillipe Desmeures, his daught...

2017 Domaine des Remizières St-Joseph
Top Pick!
92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aging in 30% new barriques, the 2017 Saint Joseph looks like a sexier, more approachable repeat of the 2015. It's dark and super ripe, with notes of cracked pepper and licorice accenting pristine blueberry flavors. Full-bodied and creamy-textured, it remains fresh, vibrant and long on the finish. (JC)" (12/2018) 91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Saint Joseph was brought up in 30% new oak, with the balance in once-used barrels. This deep purple-hued effort has some obvious oak as well as deep, ripe black fr...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Barrel fermented in 40% new oak, the 2017 Crozes-Hermitage Blanc Cuvee Christophe is a blend of 85% Marsanne and 15% Roussanne. Classy, subtle notes of pencil shavings highlight melon and pear notes in this medium-bodied, succulent wine. It shows ample concentration, a fine, silky texture and finishes with elegant persistence. Lovely stuff. (JC)" (12/2018) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A ripe, plump style, with a warm brioche note around a core of creamed melon and peach flavors. Offers a lightly toasty hint throu...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The finest vintage to date, better even than the stellar 2010, the 2015 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine De Thalabert is a gorgeous, deep, layered, and incredibly satisfying Crozes. Blackcurrants, olive tapenade, truffles and earthy notes all emerge from this full-bodied, gorgeously textured and seamless 2015. With fine tannin and no hard edge, it can be drunk today or cellaring for 15-20 years." (01/2018) 94 points Vinous: "Inky ruby. Suave, mineral-accented scents of ripe blueberry, black currant and Indian spices, along with a slowly...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 716 cases of the 2010 Ermitage de l’Oree. I have been following this cuvee since its debut vintage and this 100% Marsanne possesses more richness than most Burgundy Montrachets. Although aged in 100% new, 500-liter demi-muids, the wine reveals no evidence of oak. Honeysuckle, caramelized citrus, white peach, quince and white currant characteristics are viscous and full-bodied, yet the wine possesses striking precision and laser-like focus. This monumental effort is the most opulent and richest of all C...

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Atypically firm and structured for this cuvée, the medium to full-bodied 2017 Crozes Hermitage La Matinière boasts terrific aromas of violets, crushed stone, blueberries and licorice. It looks like a solid repeat of the 2015. (JC)" (12/2018) 91-92 points Vinous: "Bright violet color. Lucid dark berry and floral aromas are complemented by spice and mineral notes that build with air. Clean and energetic in style, offering juicy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors, a hint of olive and a late hint of spicy crac...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Hermitage Cuvée Emilie Blanc (100% Marsanne) was brought up in 60% new barrels, with the balance in once-used. It has a ripe, tropical bouquet of pineapple, spiced melon, crushed rocks, and exotic flowers. Possessing a full-bodied, rich, sexy mouthfeel, a distinct salty minerality, and sensational purity, it will be better in another year and keep for 10-15+ years. It’s an awesome Hermitage Blanc!" (12/2018) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Displaying a pale copper color that is a bit atypical, this offers gentle citrus oil, ...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From the deeper soils at the bottom of the Le Méal lieu-dit, the 2016 Ermitage Les Gréffieux was all destemmed and saw its normal 18 months in a mix of Burgundy barrels and demi-muids, with just 25% being new. This is a rich, powerful, black-fruited expression of this cuvée, offering up tons of blackcurrants, blackberries, smoked earth, chocolate, and spice. Inky colored, full-bodied, sensationally concentrated, and opulent on the palate, it's a killer bottle of wine that can be drunk today or cellared for 25 years or more." (12/2...

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Crozes-Ermitage Les Varonniers is another Hermitage look-alike with extraordinary notes of blackcurrants, toasted spice, new saddle leather, burning embers, and bacon fat. With full-bodied richness, awesome depth of fruit, and building tannins, it will mostly likely be the wine of the vintage from Crozes Hermitage." (12/2019) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sumptuous cherries line the medium to full-bodied palate of the 2018 Crozes Hermitage les Varonniers. Underneath—for the moment—are stony notes of gr...

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. (JD)" (04/2014) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Very ripe, but racy t...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: " *Cellar Selection* A big step up from Jaboulet’s La Petite Chapelle, this is on a par with some of Jaboulet’s past efforts. It’s richly concentrated, yet nuanced, with notes of blood and mineral added to ripe cassis fruit and accented by hints of vanilla and spice. The tannins form an almost creamy texture in the mouth, and the finish lingers a good long time. Drink 2012–2025. " (09/2007) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Very juicy, with nice drive to the black currant and boysenberry fruit, which is pushed by dark plum sauce, ...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the most singular wines I’m able to taste each year is unquestionably the l’Ermite Blanc from Chapoutier and it certainly lives up to the billing in 2015. Offering what I can only describe as a liquid rock (a liqueur of rocks?) character intermixed with notes of buttered citrus, pineapple, smoked meats, charcoal and toast, the 2015 Ermitage l’Ermite is full-bodied, decadent and locked and loaded on the palate. It needs 2-3 years of cellaring and I suspect will keep for half a century. (JD)" (12/2016) 98...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The inky colored 2017 Ermitage Le Pavillon comes from the biggest, baddest part of Hermitage and was brought up all in 20-25% new French oak barrels. Huge crème de cassis, crushed flowers, graphite, and liquid rock notes all dominate the bouquet, and this massively rich, powerful, yet pure and classic Hermitage builds incrementally on the palate, has a wealth of tannins, flawless balance, and a great finish. Showing the sexy, expressive style of the vintage, it has some upfront charm..." (12/2019) 99 points Robert Parker's Wine...


98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The star of the show in 2013 is the 2013 Ermitage le Pavillon. Coming from the west and eastern edges of the Bessards lieu-dit and aged in 30% new French oak, its sensational black/blue color is followed by the awesome bouquet of cassis, smoked earth, graphite and caramelized meats that could come from no other terroir in the world. Full-bodied, massive, dense, sexy and with a liquid rock-like character that comes out with time in the glass, it has sweet tannin and a blockbuster finish that keeps you coming back ...

93 points Wine Spectator: "A fleshy, ganache-driven version, featuring mulled plum and blackberry fruit inlaid with anise and Turkish coffee notes. Fresh fruit hangs on the finish. More bass than treble here, but the effect is rock-solid. Best from 2013 through 2020. 92 cases made. (JM)" (11/2012) K&L Notes: Louis Barruol is an indefatigable force in the Rhône. He is the fourteenth generation in his family to be making wine in this sixteenth-century domaine in Gigondas. On what was once the site of a Roman villa, Louis’ cellars show spectacular remains...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Always the earliest-ripening portion of the Chapoutier holdings on the Hermitage hill, the 2017 Ermitage le Méal is a complete standout. Crème de framboise notes remain fresh and lively throughout, joined by hints of blueberry, baking spices and vanilla, while the tannins are silky, the mouthfeel generous and the overall impression is one of great seductiveness and elegance. (JC)" (12/2019) 97 points Decanter: "Pure blackberry: the fruit, the bush and the leaf. It displays an intriguing spiciness too that's no...

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 ...

2017 M. Chapoutier "L'Ermite" Ermitage Rouge (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
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. Yields of 22 hl/ha. Comple...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The greatest wines Chave has produced since 2003 are the two cuvees of 2009 Hermitage. The 2009 Hermitage exhibits a black/purple color along with a sumptuous nose of roasted meats, ground pepper, black currants, blackberry jam, and subtle smoke and licorice. The extraordinary bouquet is followed by a wine of extravagant intensity as well as tremendous focus and precision. While not as powerful as the blockbuster 2003, the amazing 2009 may turn out to be a modern day version of their magnificent 1990 (which is d...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Aged 36 months in new oak, the colossal 2015 Hermitage Ex Voto is up with the finest vintages of this cuvée to date and is certainly in the same ballpark as the 2009 and 2010. This deep, powerful, muscular Hermitage boasts a saturated purple color to go with its huge nose of crème de cassis, freshly crushed rocks, incense, charcoal, and spring flowers. Full-bodied, with good acidity and huge richness and density, it requires 5-7 years of cellaring and should drink well for 40+ years. (JD)" (12/2018) 96 points Robert Parker's Win...

93 points John Gilman: "For current consumption, the 1994 Chave has been one of my favorite vintages for the last few years. It is not yet ready, but the forward and opulent fruit of this vintage have allowed the wine to drink well since its release. This bottle, like the last few, was superb, soaring from the glass with scents of crushed red and black raspberries, black pepper, grilled venison, hot stones, medicinal syrah tones, a bit of tar, herbs and a touch of toasty new oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and complex, with flawless bala...

97 points James Suckling: "The 2017 Hermitage is another gorgeous 2017 from this domaine. Revealing a deep purple hue as well as knockout notes of crème de cassis, liquid rock-like minerality, toasted spice, and graphite, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a deep, layered mid-palate, and a great, great finish. It's young and primordial, yet still offers pleasure due to its balance and purity. Do your best to hide bottles for 4-5 years and enjoy over the following two decades. This wine comes from the more limestone and sandy portions of Hermit...

98-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As usual, Chapoutier's 2018 Ermitage l'Ermite is a standout among standouts. Crushed stone, blueberries, even a touch of herb feature on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is cool and crunchy but also ripe and generous. It's rich and long, with a firm, granitic structure that should enable two-plus decades of aging. This has it all. As has become my habit, I scheduled a full morning with Michel Chapoutier and his team to taste through the company's wines from the Northern Rhône. The fascination here with...

2017 Domaine Paul Jaboulet Aîné "Domaine de Thalabert" Crozes-Hermitage
New!
94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From a scorcher of a vintage that had tiny yields, the 2017 Crozes Hermitage Domaine De Thalabert offers a deep purple color as well as a classic Thalabert bouquet of black fruits, black olive, iodine, and peppery herbs. It’s a rich, rounded, sumptuous beauty that has plenty of sweet fruit, moderate tannins, and a great finish. It’s not going to match the 2015, but it’s a rocking wine I’d be thrilled to drink." (12/2018) 93-94 points Vinous: "Youthful purple color. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe blackcurrant, blueberry...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Lastly, the 2016 Ermitage Le Méal is the top wine from Ferraton, and rightly so, as it’s a magical wine in 2016. Rocking notes of black raspberries, blackberries, toasted spices, tapenade, and dry aged beef all emerge from the glass, and it hits the palate with a wealth of material yet stays balanced, layered, and seamless. It's a sensational wine that's up with the top wines of the vintage. Hats off to the team at Ferraton for this remarkable wine as well as their full lineup of wines in 2016." (12/2018) 96 points Decanter: "A ...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1993 Le Pavilion is the Hermitage of the Vintage. More austere than when I tasted it prior to bottling, it is one of the few 1993s with a sweet inner core of fruit, as well as a dense ruby/purple color, outstanding concentration and extract, and huge tannin in the finish. It is a harder style of Le Pavilion than the 1992, but it should turn out to be a 40- to 50-year wine. (RP)" (12/1996) 92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Mature and drinking at point, the 1993 M. Chapoutier Ermitage Le Pavillon shows meaty black cher...

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Year in and year out, Jaboulet’s top white is the Hermitage Chevalier de Sterimberg, which is aged in new oak for nine months prior to bottling. The 2001 (a blend of 35% Roussanne and 65% Marsanne) exhibits aromas of ripe apples, honeysuckle, and flowers in a full-bodied, dense, chewy style with terrific texture, a rare unctuosity, good acidity as well as a long, concentrated, finish. Like most of these white Hermitages, it will drink well young, then close down, and re-emerge 10-12 years later. It will last for ...


95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Crozes-Hermitage Le Grand Courtil was destemmed and brought up in used demi-muids. A brilliant bouquet of crème de cassis, graphite, toasted spice, new leather, and white flowers gives way to a medium to full-bodied Crozes that has a stunning sense of minerality, a supple, seamless, opulent texture, plenty of structure, and a great finish. The quality continues to soar at Ferraton, and this is up with the top four to five wines from Crozes in 2017." (12/2019) 92-93 points Vinous: "Deep, lurid violet color. Deeply perfum...


91 points Vinous: "Saturated ruby. Deep-pitched black and blue fruit scents are complicated by suggestions of olive and smoky Indian spices. Sappy, penetrating and spicy on the palate, offering fresh cassis and bitter cherry flavors and a sweet hint of cola. Vibrant mineral and cracked pepper nuances enliven the finish, which clings with very good tenacity and a touch of dusty tannins. Drink through 2025. (JR)" (03/2016)

92-93 points Vinous: "Youthful purple color. Powerful smoke- and spice-accented dark fruit, licorice, smoky bacon and tobacco aromas are sharpened by a zesty mineral element. Deeply pitched black/blue fruit flavors coat the palate and pick up bitter chocolate and floral pastille accents with air. In an ample, broad-shouldered style, showing strong persistence on a youthfully tannic finish that leaves a primary dark berry note behind. (60% aged in oak barrels, 15% of them new, and 40% aged for six months in concrete tanks) (JR)" (07/2019) 91 points Robe...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "All from the Dionnieres lieu-dit, the 2017 Hermitage Les Miaux Blanc is 100% Marsanne brought up in 80% demi-muids, with the balance in stainless steel. Its medium gold color is followed by a beautiful perfume of liquid rocks, flowers oil, tangerine, and citrus blossom. It has a certain exotic quality aromatically yet is classic Marsanne on the palate with medium to full body, bright acidity, plenty of fruit, and a clean, balanced finish." (12/2018) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Solidly built, with ripe white peach, yellow apple an...

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The concentrated, rich 2017 Crozes Hermitage Roche Pierre looks terrific from barrel. Full-bodied and velvety, it's very much Hermitage-like in its power and length. Licorice, plum and dark chocolate notes all linger on the finish. (JC)" (10/2018) 94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Brought up in 30% new French oak, the 2017 Crozes-Hermitage Roche Pierre is also brilliant, with the exuberant, forward, sexy style of the vintage. Christmas spice, forest floor, new leather, dried herbs, and assorted darker berry fruits all...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Also terrific, the tiny production 2016 Ermitage Le Reverdy Blanc is a blend of 80% Marsanne and 20% Roussanne brought up in demi-muids. It gives up more honeyed marmalade, wood smoke, caramelized citrus and crushed rocks aromatics. Rich, unctuous and concentrated on the palate, with gorgeous purity, it has building structure, and a great, great finish. It’s up with the crème de la crème of the vintage and should not be missed. Give bottles a year or so and enjoy over the following two decades. The only downside to these latest r...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Crozes-Ermitage Les Varonniers is a wild beauty with Hermitage notes of blackberries, cassis, crushed rock, game, and burning embers. It has plenty of upfront, sexy fruit yet is concentrated, full-bodied, and deep on the palate, with abundant tannins. There are 456 cases of this beauty. Don’t miss a chance to buy a bottle. 95+" (12/2019) 92-94 points Vinous: "Dark purple. Deeply pitched dark berry preserve, licorice candy, smoked meat and violet aromas are complemented by building spice and olive nuances. Sappy and impr...

92 points Wine & Spirits: "No Tasting Note Given" (10/2002) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Sappy, superripe aromas of cherry liqueur and sweet oak. Dense, sweet and deep, with cherry and licorice flavors. Finishes with big, sweet, chewy tannins, excellent length and a strikingly aromatic character. Here's a '99 that's better in the bottle than it was from barrel a year ago. (ST)" (01/2002) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The luxury cuvee of Crozes-Hermitage Les Varonniers emerges from the granite hills behind ...

2017 Domaine Paul Jaboulet Aine "La Chapelle" Hermitage
New!
99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Reminding me of the 2009 La Chapelle (which is a personal favorite), the brilliant 2017 Hermitage La Chapelle knocks it out of the park with its massive, opulent personality. Notes of smoked black fruits, scorched earth, burning embers, and graphite as well as subtle background meatiness flow to a monster of a Hermitage that has full-bodied richness, incredible depth of fruit, and an overwhelming, sexy style that’s already impossible to resist. " (12/2019)
Price: $184.99

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Also inky colored, the 2018 Ermitage Le Méal is another monster of a wine that has over-the-top notes of black raspberries, cassis, graphite, new leather, ground pepper, and incense. Massive, rich, full-bodied, and about as opulent as they come, it's another borderline perfect wine in the making." (12/2019) 96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Ermitage le Méal is denser than the les Greffieux, boasting layers of blackberry fruit. It's full-bodied, rich, concentrated and tannic, with a long chewy finish that h...

94 points Wine Spectator: "This has layers of warm cherry, plum and raspberry compote forming the core, while apple wood, black tea and iron notes run underneath. The finish has a fresh and racy edge, leaving a mouthwatering feel despite the heft. (JM)" (11/2018) 93 points Vinous: "Glass-staining ruby. Highly perfumed black and blue fruit, potpourri and incense aromas are complemented by hints of exotic spices and smoky minerals. Seamless and penetrating on the palate, offering densely packed, appealingly sweet blueberry, cherry preserve, floral pasti...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another truly flawless wine from this dream team is the 2018 Ermitage L’Ermite Blanc, which comes from a vineyard located at the top of Hermitage Hill and was brought up in 20-25% new demi-muids. Offering a magical bouquet of liqueur of rock, quince, poached pears, orange blossom, and honeysuckle, it's a powerful, super-rich, expressive, full-bodied white that could come from nowhere else in the world. It's approachable today (it needs plenty of air) yet won't hit prime for another 7-8 years or so." (12/2019) 98-100 points Robe...


98 points Decanter: "60% Marsanne, 40% Roussanne Tasting notes: This is a tricky white to argue with but an easy one to drink. Resplendent vanilla, toast, peach and pastry perfume. Very rounded, with oak silk on the palate and a very long and regal nutty-cashew finish. Satisfying, mouthfilling wine. Needs food, but won’t fail to impress. Textbook stuff. " (06/2019) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bottled only a week before I tasted it, Domaine Belle's 2017 Hermitage Blanc is a superb effort. Deep straw in color, it's a 60-40 blend of Marsann...

96 points Wine Spectator: "Warm and lush in feel, featuring creamed melon, peach, apricot and quince notes mixed with honeysuckle, brioche, almond and white ginger nuances through the finish. Shows terrific range and depth, with the cut and drive to match. (JM)" (11/2019) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From the Méal and les Beaumes lieux-dits and 100% Marsanne aged 12 months mostly in demi-muids, the 2017 Ermitage Le Reverdy sports a medium gold color as well as a powerful, honey, mineral-laced style. Caramelized white peach, pineapple, orange peel, and flowe...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "More bloody meat, black raspberries, wood smoke, spice, and truffle notes emerge from the 2017 Hermitage Le Méal, a massive, opulent effort that has loads of opulence and fruit, building tannins, a gorgeous mid-palate, and a monster finish. It's one of the finest wines I've tasted from this estate! It’s already approachable yet promises to evolve gracefully for 20-25 years or more. 98+" (12/2019) 97 points Decanter: "From south-exposed vines in lieu-dit Le Meal, the fruit is all destemmed and fermented in concrete, then aged for...

97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Is le Méal the most complex and complete lieu-dit on Hermitage, when considering both red and white wines? The 2018 Ermitage le Méal Blanc certainly makes a case for the white, offering honeyed, complex notes of mixed citrus, pineapple, pear and melon, structural notes of crushed stone, ample weight and richness on the palate and a long, vibrant finish. Just terrific. As has become my habit, I scheduled a full morning with Michel Chapoutier and his team to taste through the company's wines from the Northern R...

97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Always with an almost southern character, the 2018 Ermitage Les Greffieux comes from a lieu-dit just at the base of the Méal hillside. Its deep black color is followed by a killer bouquet of black and blue fruits, cured meats, ground herbs, chocolate, and graphite that opens up beautifully with time in the glass. Deep, rich, and just straight-up massive on the palate, it has sweet tannins, thrilling purity of fruit, and a monster of a finish. Is this going to match or surpass the 2006?" (12/2019) 95-97 points Robert Parker's...
