Notes of powdered rocks, graphite, caramelized meats and both cassis and black raspberry emerge from the 2015 Hermitage Les Miaux. This rich, low-acid, chewy, downright decadent Hermitage is another huge success from this estate. It’s going to need a few years of bottle age, yet I suspect the sweetness of fruit will allow it to drink nicely relatively early in its life. The quality (and number of cuvées) from this estate continues to soar, and this is easily the finest lineup up of wines I’ve tasted from this team. (JD)
Bright purple. Spice-tinged blueberry, licorice and floral pastille aromas are complicated by suggestions of woodsmoke and dusty minerals. Chewy and concentrated on the palate, offering intense flavors of ripe black and blue fruits, olive and star anise. Smoothly plays richness off vivacity, finishing with impressive energy and supple, slow-building tannins that add gentle grip. (JR)
