Mid to light brick. Sweet, thick, nose with considerable evolution. It has at last shed its heavy load of tannins – almost. Definite Hermitage style – good! Quite severe. Actually there is still tannin on the finish. Some mushrooms, a bit of life, but this is a bit of a 1988 burgundy style – when will those tannins fully soften? Lively though. Quite a narrow drinking window because of those tannins.

Fantastic quality makes your palate spin with joy. Warm July and August with timely rains were a recipe for greatness, and this is a i vin de garde n . Seamless and silky, but also with a firm backbone of mineral, wet earth, plum, blackberry and leather notes. An old-fashioned red with a long finish.--La Chapelle vertical.

This is autumn in the glass, with wet-leaf, fresh-mushroom, smoke and dried-meat character. Orange peel, dark fruits, and game pate. Full body with incredible depth, length, ripe fruit and intensity. It goes on for minutes. Stunning finish. It is so rich, decadent and intense, but fresh and long. It defines greatness. It defines what hermitage was, is and should be.

Very big menthol nose upon opening, leading to cassis and dark fruits after about 40 minutes. In glass, dense, chewy notes of leather, bacon fat, and plum emerge. Very pleasant but may not have many years left.

Best bottle yet; elegant & complex with a lovely long finish. Fully ready but will hold; a great Hermitage!

This wine is definitely holding it's own. Initially closed on the nose, it opens to coffe and tea. The tannins have melted completely but the fruit still shows a sage and dark cherry mix. Drink now.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
