Hermitage, Northern Rhône

Paul Jaboulet Aîné

La Chapelle Hermitage Syrah 1990

Dark reddish tawny. Mostly opaque. Great reddish regal color when the light hits the glass. Notes of black cherries, blueberries, cranberries, slate stone, moist earth and a little menthol. Velvet glove in the mouth. Amazingly rich with tannins totally integrated. Silky. Flying high from the moment it was opened. 6 hours in this is getting bigger and more complex. Definitely the best performance I’ve had with this wine. — 5 days ago

L'Hermitage Syrah 2004

Another great Chave. This from a cooler vintage that is still a baby showing black fruits, cedar, olive, forest floor, pepper, licorice & violet. — 15 days ago

Hermitage Syrah 1997

Reddish tawny and modestly translucent. Earthy herbal nose. Notes of cool slate stone, cranberries, black earth. Rich fruit. Silky and seductive. Coats the mouth with fruit and still present acidity/structure. Very good. — 14 days ago

9.1

My favorite “normal” Crozes. Beef blood, violets, green olive, granite and smoke. Gorgeous expressive nose. Palate is so juicy and ripe with exceptionally pure fruit. Elegant and persistent. Velvety and nimble tannins. Super juicy and drinking so well now. Powers finish. — 11 days ago

Excellent balance of old and new world syrah with a definitely funky back bone. Punching way above its price point. Great value. — 13 days ago

Le Méal Ermitage Syrah 2005

This one was in its prime for me - red berries, minerality, and tannins all cooperating 😄 — 5 months ago

Le Chevalier de Sterimberg Blanc Hermitage Marsanne Roussanne 2012

Much more restrained on the nose. Delicate and mineral. Hmm. Sweetness at the end. Nice poise. — 10 days ago
