Both are potentially immortal offerings. The 2009 Ermitage Vin de Paille and 2010 Ermitage Vin de Paille are both made from the l'Ermite lieu-dit. Both possess deep gold colors as well as off-the-chart levels of residual sugar acidity and concentration. These massive unctuously textured phenomenally great sweet dessert wines have incredible precision as well as intensity. Available only in half bottles these connoisseur's collectibles are meant to be drunk over the next 50-100 years.Michel Chapoutier considers the 2009s which are all in bottle to be among the greatest wines he has ever produced equaling his finest wines of 2006 2003 1999 1990 and 1989 (his debut year).

This is special delivering alluring milk chocolate golden raisin creamed fig and ginger notes that are seamlessly woven together. These flavors glide through a finish that's finely stitched with singed almond cardamom and toasted pecan accents. Long and very refined. Drink now through 2032. 146 cases made. -JM
