2012 Domaine Belle Blanc  (Hermitage) 91

Luscious, round, white and yellow fruits with touches of honeysuckle and salty, crushed stones to round out the picture. You can enjoy this, or age it for more honeyed characteristics. 91 Points

2010 Domaine Belle  (Hermitage) 90

There is a lot of concentration here, but there is an equal amount of hard, crunchy tannins as well. The fruit is on the bright, quite fresh, peppery, red berry side, so this wine is definitely a good fit for classicists. Time could help soften and bring this better together. 90 Points

2009 Domaine Belle  (Hermitage) 92

Still quite young, the dark, colored, full bodied, richly textured wine offers ripe, dark, fresh, peppery blackberries, smoke, espresso, and stony characteristics. Much of what this will offer is still held in reserve. Give it another 6-10 years and it should really shine. 92 Points

2007 Domaine Belle  (Hermitage) 89

Medium bodied, easy drinking, lighter, fresh, crisp, bright red fruit styled wine, with stony, forest, pepper and herb accents. You can drink this now. It is probably close to, or at full maturity, so further aging is not going to add to the wine. 89 Points

Dark in color, lush, round and concentrated, with intensity of flavor and ample notes of stone, licorice, ripe blackberry, smoke, espresso and herbs. 91 Points
