Ratings : Robert Parker 90/100, Bettane & Desseauve 17/20
« The 2012 reds started with the 2012 Hermitage la Sizeranne, which comes from a number of lieux-dits in Hermitage. Outstanding stuff, it has lots of smoked herbs, saddle leather, pepper and minerality to go with a solid core of raspberry/blackberry fruit. Fleshy, ripe and textured, with fantastic purity, it's a pleasure-bent effort to drink over the coming 7-8 years. » (Wine Advocate 2014 - Robert Parker)

About this wine : Monier de la Sizeranne est doté d'une jolie bouche, avec ce volume et cette réserve qui lui donne de la profondeur.

About the vineyard : Michel Chapoutier est un des plus brillants négociant-vigneron de France. Implantée à Tain, depuis plus de 200 ans, son entreprise familiale M. Chapoutier rayonne dans le Rhône (Ferraton Père et fils), dans le Beaujolais (Maison Trénel), en Provence (château de Ferrages), dans le Roussillon (domaine Bila-Haut), en Australie (cinq domaines) et même en Alsace (domaine C5 Altenberg) et en Champagne (Sténopée avec Devaux) sans oublier le domaine Pinta Vera au Portugal. Sous l'adresse Maison M. Chapoutier, nous regroupons les vins issus de la gamme provenant de l’activité de négoce qui ne possèdent pas la magie des grands crus parcellaires (voir Chapoutier Sélections Parcellaires). La régularité de la production est exemplaire.

Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : 5*****Stars (Exceptional producers, representing the very top of quality in France and in the world)

About the vineyard : Ancré dans ses convictions parcellaires, MIchel Chapoutier propose une interprétation des terroirs de la vallée du Rhône qui s'élargit d'année en année, ce sont ainsi plus de 50 vins que nous avons dégusté cette année, pour la seule vallée du Rhône. La biodynamie, autre axe majeur pour les vignes du domaine, donne ici des raisins qui vibrent à l'unisson de leur terroir. Les rendements sont souvent faibles et les prix élevés, mais la dégustation d'un grand millésime de Syrah du Rhône Nord comme 2015 permet d'approcher quelques vins proches de la perfection, notamment un Ermite d'anthologie. En 2016, un terrible orage de grêle au mois d'avril a quelque peu pénalisé Le Pavillon, mais l'Ermite et Le Méal s'en sortent très bien.

Hermitage is one of the great wines of France. The wine producing area dates back to the 4th century BC. Hermitage wine was served at the table of kings, including Louis XIII.
