2009 M. Chapoutier Ermitage l'Ermite Hermitage Wine Tasting Note

2009 M. Chapoutier Ermitage l'Ermite  (Hermitage) 98

Massive, powerful, concentrated, intense, frightfully tannic and still young. Yet, once you dig your way through its youth, the wine screams to get noticed. The textures are like molten syrah that oozes all over your palate, teeth and gums, staining everything in its path. Extreme patience is required here. Based on previous vintages, this should require, if not demand another 20-25 more years before it sheds its youth, and morphs into the mature stage of life.
