Wine Advocate-Parker :
Sporting an inky purple color, the 2013 Hermitage from Yann Chave was comes from two terroirs: Beaumes and Peleat. Completely destemmed and raised all in demi-muids, it has fabulous purity in its classic black currants, smoked herbs, pepper and crushed rock-like minerality. With air, a touch of gunpowder and violet characteristics emerge from the glass, and it has classic Hermitage minerality (there's almost a Bessards-like minerality here); the wine has medium to full-bodied richness, beautiful mid-palate depth, and the focus and edge that's common in the vintage. There's enough tannin to warrant short term cellaring and it will have 20 or more years of overall longevity.
