M. CHAPOUTEIR ERMITAGE ROUGE L'ERMITE 2014 (1 mag.)

Rhône.
u. 1 x 3.5cm

The inky black/purple-colored 2014 Ermitage l’Ermite is more firm, backward and mineral driven than the sexier Pavillon, offering fabulous notes of scorched earth, wood smoke, crushed violets, and both blackcurrant and crème de cassis. An utterly profound effort, it defines the more charming nature of the vintage, displaying building tannin and one seriously long finish. Forget bottles for 5-7 years and enjoy over the following two decades.Dec 2016 Approximately 450 cases produced each vintage. WS 97 WA 97

M. CHAPOUTIER ERMITAGE ROUGE L'ERMITE 2013 (2 mag., OWC)

Rhône.

More backwards, tight and structured than either the Méal or the Pavillon, the 2013 Ermitage l’Ermite was similarly completely destemmed and raised in a scant 30% new French oak. Inky purple/blue colored, it reluctantly yields incredibly mineral-laced notes of charcoal, liquid rock, cassis, black currants and graphite. While it’s less approachable than either of the two other Hermitages, it has fabulous density and depth, ripe tannin and incredible persistence on the finish. Hide these in the cellar for a decade, and enjoy over the following three to four decades. December 2015 About 450 cases produced each vintage. WS 97 WA 96+
