M. Chapoutier Ermitage l'Ermite 2014

Member Review by Daniel Petroski:

Reggie Jackson circa October 1978. Power, structure, consistency. A true champ. Highlighted with a bit of verve – spice, menthol, mint. A spectacular finish. Lingering in the memory.

M. Chapoutier:
The name CHAPOUTIER is present in the Rhône Valley since 1808. In 1879, the distant ancestor Polydor CHAPOUTIER was the first to begin to buy vines, thus moving from the status of wine-grower of an estate to that of a viticulturist, a wine producer and a businessman. The pioneering spirit was already present in the family.

Lastly, from the very dome of the granite hill of Ermitage is the 2005 Ermitage l'Ermite. An extraordinarily powerful wine that probably needs 10-15 years in the bottle (last year I thought 20 was probably conservative), this is a 100-year wine and p... Robert Parker.

The 2005 Ermitage l'Ermite probably needs 20 years of bottle age. It is incredibly tannic and tastes like liquid minerals infused with creme de cassis, blueberry, and melted licorice. Powerful, full-bodied, but excruciatingly backward, this huge, mas... Robert Parker. A Syrah wine from Rhone in France. 2005 Chapoutier Ermitage l'Ermite 6000ml
