The 2010 Ermitage l'Ermite Blanc which comes from pure granite soils is a perfect wine. This awesome white made from pre-phylloxera vines that are not grafted onto American root stocks offers notes of acacia flowers... The 2010 Ermitage l'Ermite Blanc which comes from pure granite soils is a perfect wine. This awesome white made from pre-phylloxera vines that are not grafted onto American root stocks offers notes of acacia flowers orange and nectarine oils a liquid rock-like component and a full-bodied multidimensional and multilayered finish. As the great French wine critic Michel Bettane said about l'Ermite in many different vintages it is "greater than the greatest Montrachet." This is a 50- to 75-year white wine. -Robert Parker

Light yellow-gold. Pungent aromas of dried pit fruits white truffle smoky minerals and iodine. Deep and mouthfilling with a tactile quality and explosive peach pear and floral flavors. Expands impressively on the back... Light yellow-gold. Pungent aromas of dried pit fruits white truffle smoky minerals and iodine. Deep and mouthfilling with a tactile quality and explosive peach pear and floral flavors. Expands impressively on the back half showing velvety texture and excellent focus on the smoky relentless finish. This complex palate-staining wine could do some damage in a tasting of grand cru white Burgundies.
