Joe Czerwinski (Wine Enthusiast): “Perhaps the best Sizeranne I’ve ever tasted”

New scores from Wine Enthusiast Rhône editor Joe Czerwinski (Advanced Guide):

M. Chapoutier 2010 Monier de la Sizeranne Hermitage (Cellar Selection)
93 points

Perhaps the best Sizeranne I’ve ever tasted, the 2010 displays extra levels of richness and structure. Plum and coffee-bean notes are lightened and brightened by hints of cherries and raspberries that linger easily on the velvety finish. Delicious already, it should continue to drink well through at least 2020.

M. Chapoutier 2010 Les Arènes Cornas
91 points

A hint of cedar accents aromas of black olive and plum, while the flavors manage to blend those elements into a harmonious, savory package before ending on a lengthy espresso note. This finely textured Cornas may be tough to come by, as only 60 six packs were imported. Drink now–2020.
