Parker : 89 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2000 Ermitage La Sizeranne (2,500 cases) exhibits a deep ruby/purple color along with an elegant nose of ink, crushed minerals, black currants, and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, dense, and concentrated, with lovely purity, moderate tannin, and a long finish, it is an excellent, possibly outstanding effort that requires another 2-3 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2016.
