|2005||Bernard Faurie Bessards-Le Méal (Hermitage)|
Young, as you would expect. There are still tannins needing to be resolved. But the firm, crisp red and black fruits, earth, pepper and mineral driven, crushed stone nose is right there. Full bodied and concentrated, with crisp freshness to the fruits, this classic Hermitage will be even better with another 3-5 years in the bottle.

|2005||Bernard Faurie Greffieux (Hermitage)|
Full bodied, young, fresh, bright, vibrant, tannic and needing time before it really offers up all its stony, dark red fruits, pepper, earth and floral personality.

Fully mature, the last bottle from the cellar was as you might have guessed, the best. Meaty, stony, crisp, sweet and tart red berries, wet earth, leaf, pepper, herbs and tobacco notes were all in plain view. The wine was focused more on the aromatic complexity than weight or length.
