"Ripe and very fresh, with bright floral, licorice snap and cassis bush notes leading the way for plum sauce, blackberry and raspberry fruit flavors. The long, taut finish shows the fine structure of the vintage. Best from 2010 through 2025. 139 cases made." 95 Points - Wine Spectator

"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." - 94 Points - Robert Parker
