The black-colored 2001 Ermitage l'Ermite may be equal to the perfect 1996. Awesome levels of kirsch liqueur, licorice, and white flowers are followed by a superbly concentrated, etched, long, deep wine with multiple layers, a fabulous texture, and virtually perfect balance as well as harmony. Possessing great stature and intensity, it is a monumental achievement. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2040. Robert Parker

Not a bad syrah, but as is so common with Chapoutier, it's generic and not very expressive of place, and the tannin gets pretty grainy and harsh with air.
