M Chapoutier L Ermite Hermitage Blanc 2017

Tasting
Colour: brilliant and limpid straw yellow.
Nose: complex aromas of vanilla, almonds,
dried fruits and linden-tree. The minerality
is marked (typical of the soil).
Palate: very round and rich wine.
An elegant balance, with a light bitterness
at the end. Very ripe white fruit aromas (peach
and apricot). Beautiful length
in mouth and a huge complexity.
According to the vintage, the wine can be
kept from 30 to 60 years, indeed from
50 to 75 years

the wine is matured on lees, with regular
stirrings, between 10 and 12 months.

Jancis Robinson - 18/20
"100% Marsanne. Biodynamic. Harvested 4 September. Includes pre-phylloxera vines. Musky, fragrant and open – more aromatically exotic than the Le Méal, but still with tangy acidity and excellent mealy persistence. Wonderfully slow and stately in length."
