94pointsM. Chapoutier 2016 Les Greffieux (Hermitage)

Cellar Selection

Layers of smoke and earth keep this wine tightly closed upon opening but aeration coaxes out ripe, almost sun-baked notes of black plum and cherry preserve. It's a shy wine in youth with tannins that are taut and a bit bitter. Wait until 2023—it should improve well through 2035 and hold further. Anna Lee C. Iijima
