Tasting Notes

Another perfect wine, the 2009 Hermitage Ex-Voto is surprisingly supple and more approachable than the two single vineyard 2009 Cote Roties, La Turque and La Landonne. The massive Ex-Voto boasts abundant notes of spring flowers, blackberries, cassis, licorice, graphite and forest floor. Extremely full-bodied with sweet tannin and levels of extravagance and flamboyance that are mind-boggling, it will drink well for 30+ years.

Score: 100Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (204), December 2012

This has a distinctive singed mesquite note out front, along
with sandalwood, black tea and juniper hints, followed by a very
densely packed core of raspberry, plum and blackberry confiture flavors. The long, charcoal-studded finish has a great tug of
roasted earth. Dynamic and expressive, this should cellar effortlessly. Best from 2015 through 2035
