From one of the greatest years in Hermitage, Jean Louis Chave's 2009 Hermitage Blanc is quite possibly the greatest white ever from this estate (the 2013 will certainly be in the same league, but in a different style) and tops out on my scale. An utterly profound wine in every way, it offers to-die-for notes of liquid rock, licorice, buttered citrus, honey and quince. This gives way to a voluptuous, full-bodied, decadent and heavenly Hermitage Blanc that has massive richness and mid-palate depth while always staying fresh, pure and focused. This is insanely good white that will have half a century of longevity. Bravo! - Jeb Dunnuck

This is a stunning display of richness and precision with almost languid creamed Cavaillon melon peach and persimmon fruit framed by toasted macadamia nut and brioche hints. This is keptlively by salted butter chamomile... This is a stunning display of richness and precision with almost languid creamed Cavaillon melon peach and persimmon fruit framed by toasted macadamia nut and brioche hints. This is keptlively by salted butter chamomile and orange blossom flavors through the very long finish where a quinine note echoes. Best from 2015 through 2030. -J.M.

Heady seductively perfumed bouquet evokes fresh pit fruits citrus zest honeydew and ginger with a touch of licorice in the background. Stains the palate with intense nectarine and pear skin flavors braced by vibrant minerality. Rich but strikingly lithe on the finish which leaves potent spice and citrus fruit notes behind.
