Reviews & Scores

The 2004 Ermitage Le Meal blanc (266 cases) is total perfection in the bottle. Of course, this is supposedly the vineyard that so impressed Thomas Jefferson when he visited Hermitage in the late 1700s.

Having just had an utterly perfect bottle of DRC 1973 Montrachet, I couldn¿t help but think that this wine may well be even younger at a similar age.

Once again, the tannic structure is impeccable and perfectly integrated. This says more about the superb quality of the fruit than it does about the 100% new oak. Gravelly Meadow is Diamond Creek’s...
