Easily the finest vintage of this cuvee to date, the 2013 Ermitage le Meal Blanc doesn’t give an inch to the more heralded Cuvee de L’Orée or l’Ermite.

Easily the finest vintage of this cuvee to date, the 2013 Ermitage le Meal Blanc doesn’t give an inch to the more heralded Cuvee de L’Orée or l’Ermite. Pure perfection in a glass, with awesome caramelized citrus, pineapple, crushed rock, toasted bread and buttered peach, it’s full-bodied, massive and concentrated on the palate, with incredible purity, richness and length. As with the other top whites here, it needs a year or two in the cellar and will have 2-3 decades of longevity. - Jeb Dunnuck

Pure, with verbena, jasmine and orange blossom notes allowing the dense core of apricot, yellow apple and melon flavors to glide through. Best from 2018 through 2033. — J.M.

Vibrant, mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruit aromas, along with suggestions of white flowers, iodine and smoky minerals. Stains the palate with fresh orange, pear and nectarine flavors that are lifted and given bite by a spicy gingery nuance. Concentrated and sharply focused, showing outstanding clarity and persistent mineral and floral notes on the finish. -- Josh Raynolds
