(12-2015) Very lustrous shaded dark ruby. Tight, almost medicinal nose. Exceptionally concentrated wine. Smells almost medicinal - even more like a poultice than fruit on the nose initially then very dry on the end. But with time in the glass this opened out to leather and black pepper on the nose and really sweet fruit on the mid palate before finishing bone dry. Only medium weight and still with some grainy tannins. No hurry at all to drink this. And do decant and aerate it before serving. Quite a tghtly-wound monster!

(04-2002) The 1999 Ermitage l'Ermite is a wine that borders on perfection compared to its backward performance last year from barrel. Sadly, there are usually 500-600 cases of the cuvee, but in 1999 only 400 were produced. It comes from Chapoutier's oldest vines (most over 100 years of age), and represents the essence of both Hermitage and Syrah. From bottle, the 1999 l'Ermite reveals an old style Lafleur character in its kirsch liqueur intermixed with raspberries, blackberries, and striking minerality. It has put on considerable weight since last year, but is essentially an elegant, ethereal effort with incredible intensity as well as amazing lightness. It is a phenomenal expression of terroir. However, be forewarned, anyone expecting to derive a lot of pleasure from this before another fifteen years elapse, will be disappointed.

(09-2001) Sensational terroir wine. Packs in the chalky mineral character of the Hermitage soil, and offers intense fruit flavors. Despite the massive tannins, this concentrated, full-bodied red seems silky on the lingering finish.

Château informations
Chapoutier
Since 1808, the name Chapoutier has existed in the Rhone Valley. The distant ancestor Polydor Chapoutier began by buying some vines then becoming winemaker then grower, breeder and negociant. The pioneering spirit was already in the family.  Since 1990, Michel, is leading this exceptional company. A land rich in history and traditions. Passionate expression of soils, Michael gives his convictions ways to thrive. History of time. As is true for each element of nature. Time and the earth. Roots, the vine and the fruit. This is where the richness and generosity of the Maison M. Chapoutier begins.
