A touch extreme, as this is very toasty in style, with lots of butter, grilled hazelnut and peach cobbler aromas and flavors. Really powerful, with a broad and muscular palate. Yet there's impressive drive and length... A touch extreme, as this is very toasty in style, with lots of butter, grilled hazelnut and peach cobbler aromas and flavors. Really powerful, with a broad and muscular palate. Yet there's impressive drive and length, with solid cut thanks to invigorating bitter almond and orange peel notes buried deep. Best after 2016. -JM

Exotically perfumed bouquet of wild, herb-laced tropical and pit fruits, with notes of licorice and dried fig emerging with air; reminds me of an old Chartreuse. Deep, chewy and very rich, with gently sweet apricot, peach and dried pear flavors and notes of botanical herbs. Smoky, surprisingly nervy mineral and floral notes carry through a long, sappy, penetrating finish. I'd serve this powerful wine with a preparation of chicken and mushrooms or truffles.

The medium gold-colored 2006 Hermitage Ex-Voto Blanc (90% Marsanne and 10% Roussanne) exhibits pear and peach marmalade, honeysuckle and exotic Asian spice notes. It is a nearly over-the-top, intense, full-bodied white with an extravagant fruit character that conceals considerable acidity and structure. It will offer a mouthful of viscous, dry white wine over the next 10-15+ years.
