Sleek and relatively expressive on the nose when tasted immediately after La Landonne. Peppery and relatively transparent. Seems almost lighter than La Turque and Landonne! Certainly expressive and stony. Good acidity and freshness. Quite sinewy.

Spicy, cedary and firm, the 2015 Ermitage Ex Voto is built tough, like the granite it comes from. Hints of pencil shavings and crushed stone accent mixed red and black fruit, picking up hints of licorice and pepper on the long, tannic finish. Give this another 5-6 years in the cellar, then drink it over the following decade and a half or so.
