PRE-ARRIVAL: THIS WINE WILL SHIP IN WINTER 2021 Utterly charming and already drinkable, we are loving this lush, full-bodied beauty from a maison that made the Rhone Valley what it is today. Beautiful depths of raspberries and cherries lead the way with a subtle lift of baking spices as it rolls into a long, silky finish. Fans of the older vintages of Jaboulet’s flagship will find a friend in this beauty of a wine built for the long haul.

Wine Advocate

Even richer, darker and more powerful than the 2018 version, the 2019 Hermitage La Maison Bleue offers up some lifted, minty notes to accent its potent cassis fruit. Dark, dense, and Port-like without being overly heavy or dense, this full-bodied effort is long, intense and concentrated, with softly dusty tannins on the finish.

Beautiful cassis, truffle, damp earth, and ground pepper emerge from the 2019 Hermitage La Maison Bleue. Coming from the eastern portion of Hermitage Hill, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a rounded, opulent texture, building tannins, and a great finish. It's certainly in the same league (and style) as the 2018, and while it's going to drink nicely at a young age, my money is on it evolving gracefully for 20-25 years.
