2016 Domaine des Rémizières Saint-Joseph

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Saint Joseph is a winner. Coming from 40-year-old vines, granite soils, and brought up in 30% new oak, it has straight-up classic notes of blackberries, crushed violets, pepper, and obvious minerality to go with a tight, medium-bodied, concentrated style on the palate. Possessing a rare level of purity and finesse in its tannin, drink this beauty any time over the coming decade." (12/2018) 91 points Vinous: "(50% new oak) Bright purple.

2016 Domaine des Rémizières "Cuvée Christophe" Crozes-Hermitage

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the 2016, all of which were tasted from bottle, the 2016 Crozes Hermitage Cuvée Christophe is a rich, powerful Crozes in the vintage. Brought up in 70% new French oak, it offers a rich array of crème de cassis, jammy blackberries, toasted spice, and subtle oak. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and beautifully textured on the palate, it's drinking nicely today yet will be even better with a year or two of bottle age and keep through 2026+. 92+" (12/2018) 92 points Vinous: "Inky ruby.

2012 Delas Freres "Les Bessards" Hermitage

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The star of the show is the 2012 Hermitage Les Bessards. Coming from the pure granite soils of the Les Bessards lieu-dit, on the western edge of the appellation, it’s made from 100% Syrah and spent 16 months in 70% new French oak. It’s an incredible wine that offers classic powdered rock-like minerality, loads of crème de cassis and black raspberry fruit, smoked meats, spice and dried-flower nuances.

2016 Domaine des Remizières "Cuvée Emilie" Hermitage

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Hermitage Cuvée Emilie was brought up all in new barrels. It's come together nicely and offers a classic, smoky, meaty bouquet of darker fruits, leafy herbs, saddle leather, and truffle. Inky colored, medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated, and beautifully textured, it shows more and more complexity with time in the glass as well as an alluring floral quality. It's already approachable, assuming you don't mind ripe tannins, but will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and cruise for 10-15 years." (12/2018) 93 points ...

2017 Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage

Joe Czerwinski writes: "This year, both of Alain's sons - Antoine and Maxime - were on hand when I visited the estate. As always, the red wines here are fermented with their stems. "It's the style of the winery," said Antoine. "And, it's easier. We're not always asking ourselves, 'Is it 20%, 40%?' It's always 100%." Not much changes here, but the brothers do say the wines are spending a little longer in vat both before and after spending a year in barrel. The 2017 reds will be bottled in March 2019. I tasted a couple of barrels, but as the selection for ...

2015 E. Guigal "Ex-Voto" Ermitage Blanc

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Hermitage Ex Voto Blanc is certainly in the same league as the 2009 and 2010, and it’s going to be interesting to compare these vintages over the coming 2-3+ decades. The 2015 has all the hallmarks of a great vintage with its huge bouquet of quince, toasted almonds, brioche, liquid rocks, and honeysuckle as well as touch of licorice.

2015 M. Chapoutier "Les Varonniers" Crozes-Hermitage Rouge

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "More Hermitage than Crozes-Hermitage, the 2015 Crozes Ermitage Les Varonniers comes from a cool, west facing parcel and the same soils as the Bessards lieu-dit on Hermitage. Burning embers, ozone, saddle leather, beef blood and a liqueur of rocks bouquet gives way to a full-bodied, silky, awesome Crozes-Hermitage that's undoubtedly the greatest vintage ever for this cuvée. Give it 4-5 years of cellaring and it will keep for another two decades. Bravo! Enough can’t be said about the quality coming from the estate of Michel Chapout ...

All three samples showed brilliant purity of fruit, full body, a forward, seamless, elegant texture, and classic building minerality. This is haute couture at its finest and is pure class that could come from nowhere else. As with most 2016s, it's going to be relatively accessible in its youth, yet this is one Hermitage that's not going to hit maturity for another 8-10 years and will keep for three decades."

Rich, dense and focused, with a complex array of palate-staining orchard and pit fruit flavors. Broad and smooth but light on its feet thanks to a spine of zesty minerality.

It has a huge nose of currants, smoked earth, graphite, pepper, and cured meats. This carries to a rich, powerful Crozes that has a real sense of minerality, beautiful mid-palate depth, ripe, present tannins, and a great, great finish.
