Because the 2015 Ermitage les Greffieux is so approachable and not as forbidding as Chapoutier's other 2015s, I wonder if I've underestimated it? It's full-bodied and rich in raspberry fruit, there's an intriguing herbal note and it's already almost silky in texture rather than being dense and closed. It should provide a couple of decades of drinking pleasure.

A month-old, preserved cask sample. Mid ruby-crimson. Clean, fresh nose but I don't think I would ever guess it was from the majestic Hermitage appellation blind. Smells a bit like solid fuel! ?It is certainly introvert and set for a long life. Very uncompromising at the moment. Dry and drying end. ?And without the sheer mass that usually characterises Hermitage - but perhaps this is just because the sample is either too old or too energetically preserved.?
