Extremely dense, noble and pure, this monumental Ermitage is built for 50-100 years of cellaring. - RP

The licorice, espresso, blackberry liqueur and smoke filled nose is surpassed by the intense, mouth coating waves of dense fruit and ripe tannins. Based on recent tastings of older vintages, this will demand at least 20 more years in the cellar before it really starts to open up.

Chapoutier Ermitage Le Pavillon, aged for 20 months in 50% new French oak, delivers a decadent, yet vivacious and riveting bouquet of creamy raspberries, crème de cassis, crushed flowers, charcoal, and grilled meats. Incredibly rich and full on the nose, the palate follows suit and possesses a full-bodied, thick texture, thrilling levels of concentration, and gorgeous underlying acidity and minerality that keeps this lively and fresh. Absolutely blockbuster stuff and this brilliantly pure, impeccably balanced Hermitage needs 10-12 years of bottle age, and will evolve gracefully for longer than I’d care to estimate.

This has a very alluring ganache edge, which melds nicely into the core of crushed plum, blackberry and currant notes. Lots of anise and briar emerge on the back end, along with ample toasted spice and incense.

Lots of anise and briar emerge on the back end, along with ample toasted spice and incense. The very long finish has riveting acidity, while the fruit and ganache notes echo on and on. Dense but precise. Best from 2015 through 2035. 1,093 cases made. — JM

Red and dark berry preserves and candied flowers on the seductively perfumed nose. Juicy, deeply pitched black raspberry and blueberry flavors are complemented by notes of violet, rose and licorice. Offers an uncanny blend of richness and vivacity, with a seamless texture and no excess fat. Closes on a peppery note, with persistent florality. I find this highly seductive wine surprisingly open right now. -- Josh Raynolds
