A wine I've been lucky enough to have multiple times recently, the 2012 Ermitage les Greffieux is a full-bodied, deeply fruited, concentrated and blockbuster effort that's stays elegant, polished and balanced. Exhibiting incredible amounts of bloody meat, olive tapenade, campfire and sweet, expansive fruit, it needs 4-5 years in the cellar, and will drink nicely through 2034. - Jeb Dunnuck

A zesty version, with lots of enticing pomegranate, loganberry and blackberry fruit, liberally laced with brambly tannins and backed by mouthwatering anise, bergamot and blood orange notes. The minerality on the long finish more than offsets the almost rambunctious fruit. Just needs a little time. Best from 2018 through 2030. From France. — J.M.

Intense smoke- and mineral-accented aromas of dark berries, cherry liqueur and fresh flowers. Spicy and taut on entry, then fleshier and sweeter in the mid-palate, offering spicy black raspberry and violet pastille flavors and a jolt of tangy acidity on the back half. Puts on weight with air while maintaining striking energy and sharp focus. Finishes bright, silky and extremely long, with excellent clarity, harmonious tannins and lingering spiciness. -- Josh Raynolds

Very solid and savoury on the nose. Wonderfully ripe and opulent. Fresh and open. Really very gorgeous. Real lift. Surprisingly open. Blend of roast beef and dry chocolate! Hugely rewarding. 18/20
