Wine Spectator 92 points - This has a dusting of cocoa powder and is fairly rounded for the vintage, offering a solid core of crushed plum, mulled spice, maduro tobacco and loam. Tangy acidity sits in the background, giving the finish a racier feel, with the spice and tobacco notes lingering. Best from 2011 through 2016. 30 cases imported. –JM  (Nov 15 2010)

Wine Advocate 94 points - It is an amazing achievement. Even better is the 2008 Ermitage l’Ermite (449 cases). Not as concentrated as Le Pavillon, it reveals a powdered rock character in its ink, graphite, earth, blueberry and black currant-scented bouquet. Displaying medium to full body as well as great purity, it is another amazing accomplishment from Michel Chapoutier. Interestingly, in 2008, Chapoutier decided to cut back on the new oak for all of his top cuvees (utilizing 25% versus the normal 100%).  (Feb 2011)
