    Winemaker's Notes:

    Hermitage Blanc is one of the least-known yet most intriguing wines of the Rhône Valley. Composed primarily of Marsanne (95%) and small amounts of Roussanne (5%), it is relatively rare, accounting for only a small percentage of the production of the 309-acre Hermitage AOC.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Ripe yet well-focused, with white peach, Cavaillon melon, anise and apricot notes all mixed together, while blanched almond, jicama and white ginger flicker through the finish, with nice length. This has bass, but also the cut for balance. Drink now through 2018. 2,250 cases made.

    The 2007 Hermitage Blanc displays the lusciousness and more open-knit, evolved character of that vintage, and is more flamboyant and showy than the 2006 or 2008. Notes of white currants, hazelnuts, marzipan and quince are all present in this open-knit, full-throttle, full-bodied white Hermitage. Enjoy it over the next decade or more.

    The Wine Advocate

    Light, bright gold. Dried pear, citrus fruits and white flowers on the spicy, intensely perfumed nose. Ripe, penetrating orange and pear flavors show impressive energy and pick up smoke and anise nuances with aeration. A zesty mineral quality adds bite and focus to a long, spicy and alluringly floral finish. I'd have guessed that this wine was younger
