    94 Points! Deep ruby. Smoke- and spice-accented red and dark berry scents show excellent clarity and a sexy floral topnote. Offers concentrated but energetic black raspberry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors that become sweeter and pick up hints of candied violet and olive on the back half.

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

  4. 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

  5. Guigal Hermitage Ex Voto 2010
    WA100
    $399.98
    Availability:In Stock
    100 Points!  At the risk of sounding like a broken record, the 2010 Hermitage Ex Voto is as good as it gets. Following some of the most concentrated, rich Cote Roties ever made, it still ratcheted up the concentration level with its massive, palate saturating levels of gamey dark fruits, cassis, licorice, chocolate, graphite and powdered rock. It this beauty doesn’t make fireworks go off in your head, I don’t know what will. Full-bodied, deeply concentrated and structured, yet also fine, elegant and delineated, it is nothing short of incredible. Give this awesome Hermitage 5-6 years in the cellar and feel free to drink it anytime over the following 4-5 decades.  Jeb Dunnuck, eRobertParker.com #216, December 2014

    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. Chapoutier Ermitage Blanc L'Oree 2013
    WA100
    $224.98
    Availability:In Stock
    100 Points! Leading off three single-vintage whites from Hermitage, the stunning 2013 Ermitage Cuvee de L’Orée has an off-the-hook bouquet that includes just about everything you could think of when considering Hermitage Blanc. White peach, white flowers, almond paste, quince and wet rock are just some of the nuances, and it packs a serious punch on the palate, with full-bodied richness, a flamboyant, expansive texture and riveting focus and purity. Give it a year or so and drink it over the following 2-3 decades. - Robert Parker, eRobertParker.com #216

  9. 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
