As expected, the 2011 Ermitage l’Ermite, which comes from the lieu-dit of the same name, is more backward and focused, with a slightly closed, tight profile. Slowly giving up ample cassis and black raspberry fruit, graphite, licorice and edgy minerality, it is full-bodied, deeply concentrated and tannic, yet still never puts a foot wrong and is perfectly balanced and seamless. Give it 3-4 years in the cellar and enjoy over the following two decades or more.

Rating: 98+ Points"


Ermitage L'Ermite is the most individual statement in the Hermitage appellation and the most prized for followers of M. Chapoutier's grandest of crus. L'Ermite Rouge, a very rare wine (with approximately 375 cases made annually) produced from a 9.5 acre site at the top of Hermitage Hill.

Deep red garnet with violet highlights. Black fruits with spice and ink notes. Tannins are not only very powerful but also mellow. Smoky notes and pepper highlight wonderfully the Syrah varietal on granite soils.
