($294) Full medium ruby. Classic Hermitage aromas of dark berries and gunflint, with a suggestion of bitter chocolate. Concentrated, sweet and expansive, with inky and minerally components suggestive of the granite soil. Finishes with impressively ripe fruit flavor and huge, spreading tannins that take over the palate. From a crop level just under 30 hectoliters per hectare.

Just 700 cases. Subsection of Bessards. 50% new oak. Very dark crimson. Rich and spicy on the nose. A little dusty on the palate but chock full of life. There's a biology lesson in here, it's so alive. Quite opulent and brazen. Maybe not the purest Hermitage but certainly very satisfying.

The prodigious 1999 Ermitage Le Pavillon boasts creme de cassis aromatics intermixed with unmistakable aromas of ink. It is full-bodied and fabulously concentrated as well as powerful, with a finish that lasts for fifty seconds. This saturated black/purple-colored 1999 exhibits remarkable symmetry, purity, and overall massive size all juxtaposed with a sense of elegance and restraint. It is a monumental achievement, but ultimately is less successful than the great 1998 or 2000.

A balanced gem. Aromatically reserved and full-bodied, it unfolds mineral, wet earth and black fruit. Plenty of refined, ripe, well-integrated tannins and fresh acidity. Firm finish has a long aftertaste.
