Still in barrel at the time of this tasting, the 2013 Hermitage will certainly be one of the wines of the vintage. Offering classic, granite-induced notes of smoked dark fruits, graphite, searing minerality and bouquet garni, this sensational Hermitage has medium to full-bodied richness, beautiful mid-palate density and building tannin, all with the freshness and purity of the vintage. Reminiscent of a more backwards, tight, focused and granite-driven year (I asked Jean-Louis if there was a similar vintage he could recall, he commented that he couldn't think of one), it has solid ripeness in its aromas and flavors, good sweetness in its tannin, and a great finish. I suspect it will need 7-8 years of cellaring and keep for 20-25 years or more.

Solidly built, with a serious bolt of smoldering charcoal through the core of dark cherry, plum and blackberry preserves. Lots of bay, sage and leather fill in the background, though the dark fruit easily keeps the upper hand. Superior drive and a long sanguine echo define the finish. Best from 2019 through 2034. 2,500 cases made.
