Robert Parker: 100 Points for L’Ermite, Rouge Ermitage 2017

Image 5-6-20 at 2.17 PMRobert Parker Wine Advocate awarded 100 points to L’Ermite, Rouge Ermitage 2017.

“The 2017 Ermitage l’Ermite is equally astounding but a completely different expression of Hermitage. Somehow this combines the reservedness of le Pavillon with the generosity of le Méal, resulting in a wine that I can only describe as perfect. The pristine cassis fruit is remarkably pure, joined by complex notes of crushed stone, salted licorice and the slightest hints of fine-grained oak. It’s full-bodied, concentrated and velvety in texture, with oodles of chewy but ripe tannins and a finish that goes on for minutes.”
