Take Marsanne and filter it through a bed of rocks, and you’d have an idea of what this beauty tastes like. Full-bodied, thick, unctuous and concentrated, it’s certainly one of the most exciting dry whites coming from the Northern Rhône Valley today. - Jeb Dunnuck

Shows a flash of green tea through the finish. Exotic in range, refined and detailed in feel. Drink now through 2027. From France. — J.M.

Possessing a medium gold color and vibrant notes of caramelized citrus, toasted nuts, honeysuckle, wood smoke, and brioche, it has a huge, full-bodied profile, perfect balance, remarkable freshness, and a great finish. It’s a quintessential Hermitage Blanc to drink over the coming 15+ years.

Brilliant yellow. A powerful, seductively perfumed bouquet evokes poached pear, peach nectar, honey, smoky lees and sweet butter.

A powerful, seductively perfumed bouquet evokes poached pear, peach nectar, honey, smoky lees and sweet butter. Offers fleshy, palate-staining orchard and pit fruit and buttery brioche and honeysuckle flavors, plus a vanilla note that emerges stealthily on the back half. Finishes with superb focus and mineral-driven persistence, leaving a suave floral note behind. -- Josh Raynolds

The extra time in bottle has settled the considerable oak influence into balance with the ripe, concentrated, peach and melon aromas. Some lovely honeysuckle builds with air. Toasted, biscuity, oak flavors frame up ripe...   The extra time in bottle has settled the considerable oak influence into balance with the ripe, concentrated, peach and melon aromas. Some lovely honeysuckle builds with air. Toasted, biscuity, oak flavors frame up ripe, white peaches and grilled lemons. Long, suave and concentrated palate. Drink or hold.

From 60 to 100+ year-old vines, 20% from Hermite and 80% from Murets. This has an intense, oaky nose of beeswax, marzipan, macadamia and cashew. The oak influence is strong in both flavour and texture, but underneath...   From 60 to 100+ year-old vines, 20% from Hermite and 80% from Murets. This has an intense, oaky nose of beeswax, marzipan, macadamia and cashew. The oak influence is strong in both flavour and texture, but underneath there is real power and vinous intensity of fruit. It’s a large-framed wine, very full-bodied, powerful, oily and mouth-filling. Very long finish.
