Ermitage Greffieux, Maison M. Chapoutier 2021

Tasting Notes

Deep nose of wild berries and herbs plus raw meat, then with a little aeration a roasted meat character emerges. Incredibly focused on the enormously concentrated and compact palate. Sensational stony minerality and wild herb character at the enormously long and brilliant finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drinkable now, but best from 2026.

The 2021 Ermitage Les Greffieux offers more breadth and richness, with perfumed red and black fruits, pepper, and gamey notes. It doesn't have the density of the 2018, 2019, or 2020 but shines for its balance, purity, and elegance, as well as complexity. This charming, seamless, medium to full-bodied Hermitage is going to drink nicely right out of the gate.
