  1. Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage La Chapelle 2016
    JD95-97
    WA95-97
    VM96-98
    $184.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96-98 Points! Dark purple. A highly expressive, mineral-accented bouquet evokes fresh blackberry and blueberry, candied flowers, incense and exotic spices. Sweet, palate-staining black and blue fruit liqueur and violet pastille flavors are complicated by suggestions of cracked pepper and bitter chocolate; a spicecake nuance gains strength with aeration. Steadily building tannins add shape and grip to the extremely long, incisive finish, which emphatically repeats the floral and mineral notes. I wouldn't be surprised to see this wine turn out as well as the amazing 2015 version. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media Learn More

    VM94
    $149.98
    Availability:In Stock
    97 Points! A gorgeous intensity of plum, spice and grilled meat on the nose. Cloves and hints of dried spices. This is a big, structured La Chappelle. Full and powerful with chewy tannins and a long, long finish. A bit austere and muscular but gorgeous. Tar, spice, dried meat and asphalt. Needs to be aged for at least another five or six years. This is another 1991 in the making. - JamesSuckling.com, 2014 Learn More
  3. Bernard Faurie Hermitage Blanc (Gold Capsule) 2017
    VM94-96
    $164.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94-96 Points! Pale yellow-gold. Vibrant, mineral-accented orchard and pit fruit scents pick up floral, blonde tobacco and succulent herb nuances with aeration. Pure, focused and energetic, especially for being all Marsanne, offering intense pear, white peach and Meyer lemon flavors underscored by a vein of smoky minerality. Finishes extremely long and precise, displaying lingering honeysuckle and yellow Chartreuse qualities. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media

  5. Delas Hermitage Les Bessards 2015
    JD100
    WA99
    $199.98
    Availability:In Stock
    100 Points!  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 and graceful on the palate, and is never over the top or heavy. It's a perfect Hermitage that will start to shine with 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for three decades or more. Bravo! - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com

  6. Chapoutier Ermitage Blanc L'Oree 2015
    WA98
    $199.98
    Availability:In Stock
    98 Points! Of the three sélection parcellaire whites, the 2015 Ermitage de l’Orée is the most fresh and lively, with full-bodied richness and depth in its pineapple, mint, tropical fruits, toasted bread, brioche and liquid rock-styled aromas and flavors. It has good acidity, a stacked mid-palate and one seriously long finish. - Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate #228

  7. Chapoutier Ermitage Rouge Le Pavillon 2015
    JD100
    WA99
    $329.98
    Availability:In Stock
    100 Points!  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. - Jeb Dunnuck

  8. J. L. Chave Hermitage Rouge 2012
    WS95
    WA96
    $279.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points!  One of the more charming and forward efforts from Chave, the 2012 Hermitage sports a mostly opaque purple color to go with classic creme de cassis and blackberry fruits intermixed with notions of lead pencil shavings, violets and powdered rocks. Deep, full-bodied and sumptuously textured, with good freshness, this pure, elegant Hermitage shows more and more definition and cut with time in the glass, but never loses it's more fruit forward, charming profile. I suspect it will drink nicely for most of its life. - Jeb Dunnuck, eRobertParker.com #212, December 2015
