M. Chapoutier l'Ermite Ermitage Syrah 2000

$295

... It reveals notes of liquid minerals intermixed with kirsch liqueur and blackberries... The extraordinary 2000 flirts with perfection. A provocative wine with great minerality, finesse, and delineation, it blew me away when I tasted it from bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2035. Robert Parker

Beautiful aged Syrah. A little mushroom earthiness on the nose. Elegant fine grain tannins. Very powerful mid palate. To my guests last night, thank you for sharing!

Mid to dark ruby in colour with a tawny edge. Lovely perfume with roasted meats, dried flowers, and earthy notes. With time in decanter more barnyard cowyard notes developed, but in no way was this Brett. On the palate ultra savoury but also quite sweet initially. Soft resolved Tannins and ready to drink. Not unlike a top Burgundy with more fire power. After about 6 hours it had developed tarry aromas with coal dust and liquorice. Loved this wine. Usually have our top wine of the week at Sunday lunch. This matched well with Roast Pork.

This is young! Incredible! I love this animal, spicy, fruity aromas soooo complex. Very mineral. What a Christmas wine!

Just a super, complex, full-bodied white. Amazing depth that just kept getting better over the course of a 4 hour dinner.

Dark garnet in color and great legs. Very light nose with mellow fruit and mild alcohol. Stong stawberry and rich dark fruit, lingers dry and smokey.

Lovely wine. Nice balance but not quite the depth to make it exceptional.

Magnum version. Mineral core kept giving. I understand how this wine might contribute to being a hermit. No sharing!
