"Made in a totally different style, the masculine, backward 2005 Hermitage exhibits an inky/dark ruby/purple color along with aromas of graphite, creme de cassis, licorice, roasted herbs, and scorched earth. The minerality and tannins dominate this gamy, thick, rich 2005, which, given its tannic structure, is closest in style to a vintage such as 1995 or 1998. Give it 7-10 more years of cellaring, and drink it over the following three decades."

The proper 'growers' Champagnes from J. Dumangin Fils are attracting increasing interest as opposed to the heavily branded offerings of the Grandes Marques. This vintage Champagne is only released when Gilles Dumangin believes it is readily approachable. Made from equal volumes of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, this alluring wine will age well for at least a decade if sympathetically cellared.

Full-bodied, with honeyed touches, this is an exceptional vintage Champagne of great character and finesse. The finish is long, with a delicious biscuity after taste.
It recently scored 95/100 in the French wine guide 'Gilbert & Gaillard', an equal score to Dom Perignon’s Oenothèque 1996 (which is twice the price).

"As for the 2010 Hermitage Blanc, it is an exquisite wine with fabulous fruit intensity. Lots of acacia flower, anise, quince, fig and pineapple intermixed with a hint of white peaches emerge from this well-delineated, full-bodied, enormously endowed, complex, dry white Hermitage. This wine lives up to the reputation bestowed on it by President Thomas Jefferson when he said in the 1780s that white Hermitages were France’s greatest white wine. The 2010 should drink well for 30-40+ years. "
