97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Crozes-Ermitage Les Varonniers is another Hermitage look-alike with extraordinary notes of blackcurrants, toasted spice, new saddle leather, burning embers, and bacon fat. With full-bodied richness, awesome depth of fruit, and building tannins, it will mostly likely be the wine of the vintage from Crozes Hermitage." (12/2019) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sumptuous cherries line the medium to full-bodied palate of the 2018 Crozes Hermitage les Varonniers. Underneath—for the moment—are stony notes of gr...

98-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As usual, Chapoutier's 2018 Ermitage l'Ermite is a standout among standouts. Crushed stone, blueberries, even a touch of herb feature on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is cool and crunchy but also ripe and generous. It's rich and long, with a firm, granitic structure that should enable two-plus decades of aging. This has it all. As has become my habit, I scheduled a full morning with Michel Chapoutier and his team to taste through the company's wines from the Northern Rhône. The fascination here with...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Crozes-Hermitage Le Grand Courtil was destemmed and brought up in used demi-muids. A brilliant bouquet of crème de cassis, graphite, toasted spice, new leather, and white flowers gives way to a medium to full-bodied Crozes that has a stunning sense of minerality, a supple, seamless, opulent texture, plenty of structure, and a great finish. The quality continues to soar at Ferraton, and this is up with the top four to five wines from Crozes in 2017." (12/2019) 92-93 points Vinous: "Deep, lurid violet color. Deeply perfum...

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Also inky colored, the 2018 Ermitage Le Méal is another monster of a wine that has over-the-top notes of black raspberries, cassis, graphite, new leather, ground pepper, and incense. Massive, rich, full-bodied, and about as opulent as they come, it's another borderline perfect wine in the making." (12/2019) 96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Ermitage le Méal is denser than the les Greffieux, boasting layers of blackberry fruit. It's full-bodied, rich, concentrated and tannic, with a long chewy finish that h...

95 points Wine Spectator: "Richly rendered, with lots of ganache and espresso notes leading off, followed quickly by waves of dark currant, plum and blackberry paste flavors. Singed tobacco and alder elements fill in on the finish. Features grip and drive to balance the heft. Well done. (JM)" (12/2019) 94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The flagship 2017 Saint Joseph Lieu-Dit Saint Joseph comes from one of the top vineyards in the appellation and spent 12-14 months in oak. It's another saturated purple-colored 2017 that has beautiful minerality to go with notes o...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "More bloody meat, black raspberries, wood smoke, spice, and truffle notes emerge from the 2017 Hermitage Le Méal, a massive, opulent effort that has loads of opulence and fruit, building tannins, a gorgeous mid-palate, and a monster finish. It's one of the finest wines I've tasted from this estate! It’s already approachable yet promises to evolve gracefully for 20-25 years or more. 98+" (12/2019) 97 points Decanter: "From south-exposed vines in lieu-dit Le Meal, the fruit is all destemmed and fermented in concrete, then aged for...

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Côte Rôtie La Mordorée comes from the La Côte Brune and the Côte Blonde lieux-dits and is brought up in demi-muids, roughly 35% being new. Black raspberries, currants, cured meats, new leather, and Asian spice notes all define the bouquet. Full-bodied, powerful, and opulent on the palate, it has lots of tannins, loads of fruit, and a great finish." (12/2019) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Always a blend of the Côte Blonde and Côte Brune lieux-dits, the 2018 Cote Rotie la Mordorée features scents of penc...

97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Always with an almost southern character, the 2018 Ermitage Les Greffieux comes from a lieu-dit just at the base of the Méal hillside. Its deep black color is followed by a killer bouquet of black and blue fruits, cured meats, ground herbs, chocolate, and graphite that opens up beautifully with time in the glass. Deep, rich, and just straight-up massive on the palate, it has sweet tannins, thrilling purity of fruit, and a monster of a finish. Is this going to match or surpass the 2006?" (12/2019) 95-97 points Robert Parker's...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Hermitage Les Dionnières is more deep, structured, and serious, with killer notes of crème de cassis, graphite, ground pepper, and inky notes. Rich, full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, and with both tannins and acidity to burn..." (12/2019) 96 points Decanter: "From south-facing vines on clay-limestone soils, the fruit was fermented in concrete and will be aged for up to 18 months in oak, around 25% new. The oak is robust but can't entrap the dynamic fruit. There's a touch of rich plum compote to the ripe blackberry ...

97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Ermitage Le Pavillon is just as good yet has a more liquid rock-like character that needs to be tasted to be believed. Revealing an inky purple/blue color as well as incredible notes of blueberries, cassis, crushed rock, liquid violets, and new leather, this off-the-charts barrel sample has massive richness and depth, building tannins, and a finish that won't quit. It’s not for those looking for instant gratification but is a legendary Hermitage in the making." (12/2019) 96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "...

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Côte Rôtie Neve comes from the more schist soils in the northern part of the appellation and is also brought up in demi-muids. It has a slightly more vivid purple color as well as racy notes of crème de cassis, vanilla, crushed violets, and ample minerality. It's always more focused, chiseled, and structured than the Mordorée. Both 2018 Côte Rôties from Chapoutier are brilliant wines in the making." (12/2019) 95-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Chapoutier's 2018 Cote Rotie Neve features stunning scents of vi...

100 points James Suckling: "Much anticipated vintage for Grange and it is a powerhouse of concentration and complexity. Aromas of orange and lemon peel to start, then graphite, blackberries, plum paste, black cherries, boundless sweet oak spice, fresh cedar, tar, mahogany, roasted coffee and chocolate - the list goes on. Such complexity. Classic Grange, offering such deep, dark intensity. The palate has immense richness and depth with a super succulent and very long, fleshy, deeply weighted array of dense, velvet-wrapped tannins that run so long. The fru...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Made from 100% Syrah, the 2017 Côte Rôtie L'Eglantine comes from a mix of parcels spread between the Côte Blonde and Côte Brune and spent 16 to 18 months in oak casks. This ruby-hued 2017 is medium to full-bodied and elegant, with a classy perfume of spiced raspberries, spring flowers, cured meats, and dried spice. With considerable elegance, building yet ripe tannins, and a balanced, layered style... 94+" (12/2019) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Ferraton's 2017 Cote Rotie l'Eglantine displays cedary, meaty overton...
