Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 99+

"With approximately 500 cases produced, the 2015 Hermitage les Bessards is probably among the most available of the vintage’s top wines. Jump on it if your means allow, as I suspect this wine will be a candidate for perfection once it sheds some tannin. It’s perfumed on the nose, concentrated on the palate and amazingly long yet also elegant from start to finish. And amid the power, oak and massive cassis and blackberry fruit, it also manages to include hints of crushed stone evocative of its granitic terroir. It’s breathtaking stuff, virtually guaranteed to bring a smile to any wine lover’s face." [Joe Czerwinski, 29/12/2017]

Vinous – 93-95

Lurid ruby. Complex, expansive aromas of blackberry liqueur, incense, smoky minerals and Moroccan spices. An array of fresh black and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors show impressive energy and focus. Picks up allspice and star anise nuances with air, along with a suggestion of candied flowers that carries through the extremely long, sweet finish; smooth tannins make a late appearance.

JancisRobinson.com – 18

Cask sample. Tasted blind. Purplish, very dense crimson. Real energy and some cool force bubbling up under the fruit. Minty and quite suave. Still a baby and like a taut spring but convincing. [17/10/2016]

Anticipated maturity: 2027-2042
