Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2005 Ermitage Les Greffieux is a beauty, but it has to take a backseat to the 2006. It has an admirable creme de cassis note, an inky purple color, plenty of meat, smoke, steel, and black fruits in a dense, fleshy style. It is by far the most forward of the 2005 Ermitages. That's not to say there's any deficiency in tannin lurking underneath the wine's density and richness. It should evolve for 20-25 years.
