On the palate, waves of mineral-drenched black fruit washed across the senses with herbal tones, showing remarkable balance and poise...Youthful today with serious upside potential, yet so hard to resist now." (E. Guido) (1417020) Bernard Faurie Hermitage Rouge Bessard/Meal 2012 $135 per bottle "...Fresh red and dark berries, along with suggestions of star anise, smoky minerals and potpourri.

Silky, deeply f lavored and focused, offering energetic black raspberry and f loral pastille f lavors and a zesty peppery nuance. Finishes smooth, spicy and very long..." JR 93 (1418028) Bernard Faurie St Joseph 2012 $67 per bottle "...Potent, mineral-laced blackberry and cherry liqueur aromas are complicated by a suave f loral nuance, picking up a white pepper quality with air. Seamless and appealingly sweet, offering energetic dark berry and spicecake f lavors and a touch of smokiness. Closes lively and precise, with slow-building tannins and a jolt of bitter cherry...delivers superb value, assuming that you can find it." JR 92 (1414013) nORTHen RHOne
