After tastings at the Hermitage names of Delas, Chapoutier and Jean-Louis Chave, the report on Hermitage 2009 red and white has been posted under the 2009 Northern Rhône tab on the left hand column. Visits to Yves Gangloff and Domaine Georges Vernay - both big names - at Condrieu and the Domaine Bernard at Côte-Rôtie have been entered. In the Veteran stage, I would highlight the 1994 white Hermitage from Jean-Louis Chave, and the 1996 Condrieu Coteau de Vernon from Vernay, the last vintage made by Georges before he retired - both are in great shape still.
