($305) Ruby-red. Seductively perfumed bouquet of dark berry preserve and cherry aromas, with complicating notes of pungent herbs and anise. Pliant, deeply concentrated dark fruit and floral pastille flavors, with a smoky, pungently herbal quality adding another element. This smooth, alluring wine finishes with noteworthy sweetness and persistent fruit and violet notes.

Essence of 'manly' Hermitage. Every male dressing room you have ever smelt (I'm not talking rugby clubs here but hair brushes and leather and pomades) distilled into a single liquid. This will surely be a standout classic red Hermitage. Very dry, solid, concentrated and tight on the finish but with wonderfully fine tannins in real abundance.

A more near-term candidate for consumption is the 2007 Ermitage l'Ermite. It is a more austere, slightly less concentrated effort possessing notes of powdered rock as well as red and black fruits, full-bodied power, and a long finish. It is not among the pantheon of the most compelling Ermitage l'Ermites made by Michel Chapoutier, but it is certainly an outstanding one.

Offers depth, length and character, with mouthfilling blackberry, raspberry and cherry fruit flavors supported by bright acidity. The long, minerally spine lets additional cherry pit, blood orange and espresso notes chime in. Still a touch raw in a youthful way, so let this settle in.
