Vinous Media

93 Points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous: "Glass-staining ruby. Powerful scents of red and dark berry preserves, smoked meat, violet and minerals offer impressive clarity and expand in the glass. Velvety in texture, with deep, liqueur-like red berry flavors, gentle tannins and a strong undercurrent of lively minerals. The smoky note repeats strongly on the lush, seductively sweet finish. Extremely appealing even now, but this really deserves a chance to sleep for at least another decade." 01/09

Wine Spectator

91 Points, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator: "Tightly wound, with a core of braised fig, currant paste and coffee notes held in check by iron and tar. There's rather muscular grip for the vintage, and the long finish shows slightly taut tannins but is a bit shy on depth. Should unwind with cellaring. Best from 2010 through 2018. 2,250 cases made." 2009


90 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, "This was the first vintage where the Frey family had control of the estate. The 2006 Hermitage la Chapelle is an outstanding effort yet clearly comes in behind what has been achieved in more recent vintages. Impressive smoky black fruits, some meatiness and savory earth characteristics, medium to full body, good concentration, and ripe tannins all make for a rock solid, impressive 2006 that's best enjoyed over the coming decade or so."
