Ripe, with a lovely ensemble of loganberry, raspberry and blackberry fruit at the core, backed by singed anise, alder and briar notes. Shows good energy through the finish, with a backdrop of mulled spice that should emerge with cellaring. Best from 2015 through 2021. 92 points Wine Spectator
Moving to the reds, the 2011 Ermitage Monier de la Sizeranne doesn't pull any punches and dishes up sexy, voluptuous levels of black cherries, raspberry, spice, dusty rock and crushed flowers. Medium to full-bodied, textured and with low acidity, it is distinctly delicious and hard to resist. 92 points The Wine Advocate
"Saturated ruby. Ripe cherry, blackcurrant, olive and woodsmoke on the deeply scented nose. Broad and fleshy on entry, then more tightly coiled in the middle, offering an array of juicy red and dark fruit flavors and a touch of licorice pastille, The smoky quality comes back strong on the clinging, incisive finish, which features silky tannins, peppery spices and a hint of cola." 91 points Vinous / Antonio Galloni
"A selection of fruit from Méal, Bessards and Greffieux, Monier de la Sizeranne is tight and reticent in 2011, needing a day of air to get beyond its oak. Even then, the purple fruit feels held back by granite tannins, the contrast of ripe fruit and cool rock a reminder of the vintage's cool spells. Drink now with a thick steak or hold another seven to ten years." 90 points Wine & Spirits
