96 points "Black/purple to the rim, the sensational 2005 Hermitage Les Bessards possesses a classic bouquet of graphite, licorice, creme de cassis, and a touch of background oak. Massive, even monstrous in the mouth with enormous extract, this is a 50-60 year wine. It is full-bodied, high in tannin, and should not be touched for another decade. It will keep through 2050+."

92 points "Medium ruby. Began youthfully closed, but with aeration this revealed deep, ripe aromas of dark cherry, plum, bitter chocolate, espresso and minerals. Firmly built and brooding, with flavors of dark berries, licorice and tobacco carrying through the finish. A big, almost hulking wine that will need some serious cellaring to gain complexity and definition. But this appear to have all the necessary elements. 92(+?) points" Best 2010-2030
