  1. 92 Wine Spectator Notes

    This has a dusting of cocoa powder and is fairly rounded for the vintage, offering a solid core of crushed plum, mulled spice, maduro tobacco and loam. Tangy acidity sits in the background, giving the finish a racier feel, with the spice and tobacco notes lingering. Best from 2011 through 2016.

  2. 94 Wine Advocate Notes

    It is an amazing achievement. Even better is the 2008 Ermitage lErmite (449 cases). Not as concentrated as Le Pavillon, it reveals a powdered rock character in its ink, graphite, earth, blueberry and black currant-scented bouquet. Displaying medium to full body as well as great purity, it is another amazing accomplishment from Michel Chapoutier.

  3. 91 Vinous Notes

    Glass-staining ruby. Assertive, mineral-accented aromas of black raspberry and cherry compote, spice cake and licorice. Picks up spicy character with air, along with a touch of cracked pepper. Sweet and expansive, offering energetic red and dark fruit flavors and notes of licorice pastille and mocha. A lively, peppery quality adds energy to a long, precise finish, which echoes the floral note.
