BOW (8.5)

Parker (96)

The two Hermitages both showed brilliantly. Certainly one of the top wines in the vintage, the 2013 Hermitage Les Bessards sports an inky black color to go with serious notes of liquid rock (I commented in my notes that drinking this was similar to licking a rock), cracked pepper, scorched earth, cassis and blackberry-like fruit. Concentrated, firm and structured, with medium to full-bodied depth and weight, it will need 3-5 years to round into form, and have two decades of longevity.

Winespectator / James Suckling (93)

Dense and fleshy in feel, with twinges of espresso and baker's chocolate running amid the core of dark plum, steeped currant and blackberry compote. The finish has a dark tobacco note lurking. This will need some time to settle in.

Added to favorites.
