Jean-Louis Chave had done some preblending of the 2017 Hermitage meaning several parcels had already been combined with others, so there were fewer components to taste. A sample that included some L’Ermite, Les Beaumes and Péléat was fragrant, loaded with peppery spice and came across as slightly open-knit (93 – 95). A second component, mostly Le Méal, was richer and riper-tasting, with lush fruit and hints of roasted meat (97 – 99). Finally, a sample Jean-Louis described as “more the core of the blend” (mainly Les Bessards) was simultaneously firm and generous, with notes of crushed stone, cassis and licorice (98 – 100).  99 Advocate
