2015 M. Chapoutier "Le Méal" Ermitage Blanc (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 M. Chapoutier "Le Méal" Ermitage Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another perfect wine is the 2015 Ermitage le Meal Blanc. The most decadent, unctuous and layered in the lineup, with to-die-for notes of white currants, toasted nuts, celery seed and licorice, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a huge mid-palate and a refreshing, pure, yet blockbuster finish that just won’t quit. If I had to pick a desert island white, this might be it." (12/2016) Wine Spectator: "The 2015 Ermitage White Le Méal is richer, with a rounder feel as salted butter, creamed pear and yellow apple fruit form the core while brioche, nectarine and elderfl ...Read More »

Domaine Remy Nodin Saint Peray Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut

Wine Spectator: "This sparkler offers a lovely Jonagold apple core, with hints of ginger, melon rind, star fruit and ginger weaving in and out. The lovely, lightly firm mousse gives the finish cut. Drink now. 200 cases made. (JM)" (5/2015) K&L Notes: Remy Nodin founded his winery in 2008. Prior to that, his fruit was all sold to the large cooperative Cave de Tain. He farms 9 hectares throughout the northern Rhone including holdings in Crozes-Hermitage, Cornas, St. Joseph and Saint-Peray. It is worth noting that Saint-Peray in its heyday produced sparkling wines that commanded more... Read More »

2015 Domaine des Remizières "Cuvée Emilie" Hermitage Blanc New!
2015 Domaine des Remizières "Cuvée Emilie" Hermitage Blanc

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A bigger, more serious wine, the 2015 Hermitage Cuvee Emilie Blanc (97% Marsanne and 3% Roussanne, aged in 70% new barrels) comes all from the Maison Blanche lieu-dit. It’s backward and closed, with crisp white peach, caramelized stone fruits and background oak giving way to a rich, concentrated, beautifully textured profile on the palate. It needs 2-3 years of cellaring and will keep for two decades. 93+ (JD)" (12/2016) K&L Notes: The Desmeures family of Domaine des Remizières are fourth-generation winemakers who originally sold grapes to the local cooperative.

2015 M. Chapoutier "de l'Orée" Ermitage Blanc (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 M. Chapoutier "de l'Orée" Ermitage Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Of the three sélection parcellaire whites, the 2015 Ermitage de l’Orée is the most fresh and lively, with full-bodied richness and depth in its pineapple, mint, tropical fruits, toasted bread, brioche and liquid rock-styled aromas and flavors. It has good acidity, a stacked mid-palate and one seriously long finish." (12/2016) 97 points Decanter: "Tight bouquet, deep mass of jumbled fruits. Glorious and fat in a complex, provocative wine. In a different league. Drinking Window 2018 - 2038" (3/2017) Wine Spectator: "Topping the production pyramid here at the Ermitage bottlings, starting with the ...Read More »

2003 E. Guigal "Ex-Voto" Hermitage Blanc

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Hermitage Ex-Voto blanc is the quintessential white Hermitage, a blend of 95% Marsanne and 5% Roussanne with extraordinary honeyed licorice, quince, marmalade, and truffle notes, an unctuous texture, great purity and richness, and a profound mouthfeel and length. This is extraordinary wine and certainly one of the most profound dry whites I ever tasted. It seems to be set for an amazingly long life. 96+ (RP)" (4/2007) 96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium gold. Incredibly complex bouquet of yellow plum, dried apricot, peach, floral honey, yellow Chartreuse, blonde tobacco and a ...Read More »

2015 M. Chapoutier "L'Ermite" Ermitage Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the most singular wines I’m able to taste each year is unquestionably the l’Ermite Blanc from Chapoutier and it certainly lives up to the billing in 2015. Offering what I can only describe as a liquid rock (a liqueur of rocks?) character intermixed with notes of buttered citrus, pineapple, smoked meats, charcoal and toast, the 2015 Ermitage l’Ermite is full-bodied, decadent and locked and loaded on the palate. It needs 2-3 years of cellaring and I suspect will keep for half a century" (12/2016) Wine Spectator: "The 2015 Ermitage White L'Ermite is scintillating, with ...Read More »

2009 M. Chapoutier "Vin de Paille" Ermitage (375ml)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are two wines readers should keep an eye out for, even though they are very limited in availability (just under 300 cases of each). Both are potentially immortal offerings. The 2009 Ermitage Vin de Paille and 2010 Ermitage Vin de Paille are both made from the l’Ermite lieu-dit. Both possess deep gold colors as well as off-the-chart levels of residual sugar, acidity and concentration. These massive, unctuously textured, phenomenally great sweet dessert wines have incredible precision as well as intensity. Available only in half bottles, these connoi ...Read More »

2014 M. Chapoutier "Les Granits" Saint-Joseph Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The white of the vintage in Saint Joseph is the 2014 Saint Joseph les Granits Blanc. Coming all from one of the top terroirs in the region, the granite soils of the lieu-dit Saint Joseph, this 100% Marsanne release boasts terrific aromas and flavors of buttered citrus, poached pears, honeysuckle, spice and caramelized pineapple. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and textured, yet also elegant and silky, it should be a must buy by anyone who loves northern Rhône whites. (JD)" (12/2015) 92-94 points Vinous: "Limpid gold. A wild, intensely perfumed bouquet evokes fresh orchard and p ...Read More »

2014 M. Chapoutier "de l'Orée" Ermitage Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The thickest, most unctuous, full-bodied and sexy white of the vintage is the 2014 Ermitage de l’Orée. Coming all from the sedimentary soils of the Les Murets and aged mostly in demi-muids (only 15% new), it offers a sensational perfume of caramelized peaches, campfire, honeysuckle and white flowers that literally come soaring from the glass. Possessing uncommon density, a stacked mid-palate, loads of sweet fruit and a blockbuster finish, this hedonistic effort can be drunk with incredibly pleasure today, or cellared for a decade or more. It will have th ...Read More »

2003 M. Chapoutier "De l'Orée" Ermitage Blanc
Bid on this bottle of 2003 M. Chapoutier "De l'Orée" Ermitage Blanc (99RP, 95WS, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Nearly perfect, one of the most prodigious dry white wines I have ever tasted is the 2003 Ermitage Cuvee de l’Oree. A 669-case cuvee fashioned from yields of 10 hectoliters per hectare, it offers aromas and flavors beyond anything I have previously tasted in a dry white. It tastes like a liqueur of licorice intermixed with a liqueur of honeysuckle, quince, and rocks. Opulent, viscous, and full-bodied, at first glance it is seemingly fragile and over the top, but it boasts extraordinary freshness and liveliness as well as monster concentration and a finish that lasts over 60 seconds. I suspect it will drink beautifully for 3-4 years, then go into a funky stage, and re-emerge two decades later. It may be a 100-year wine ... but who knows? Without question, it is a tour de force in winemaking. (RP)" (02/2006)

2014 M. Chapoutier "Le Méal" Ermitage Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Similar in style to the hedonistically-styled Cuvee de l’Orée (especially when compared to the structured, mineral-laced l’Ermite), the 2014 Ermitage le Méal Blanc (aged in 10% new demi-muids) offers layers of celery seed, brioche, caramelized pineapple and citrus oil on the nose. Thick, rich, voluptuous and full bodied with a massive finish, drink this sensational white anytime over the coming two to three decades. Looking at the 2014 whites from Michel Chapoutier, these are gorgeous wines that show the suppler, more elegant style of the vintage, yet st ...Read More »

2014 M. Chapoutier "L'Ermite" Ermitage Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine of the vintage (and I’ll include all the wines of the northern Rhône, red and white in that grouping) is the 2014 Ermitage l’Ermite Blanc. Always made from 100% Marsanne that comes from the granite soils of the l’Hermite lieu-dit, it was aged 11 months in 25% new demi-muids before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Its medium-gold color is followed by a heavenly bouquet of liquid rock, hazelnut, caramelized pineapples, stone fruits and quince. Thick, unctuous, full-bodied, thrillingly pure and laser focused with a dry, blockbuster finish that ...Read More »

2016 Powell & Son Roussanne-Marsanne Barossa Valley South Australia

Winemaker's Notes: "Our Roussanne Marsanne is based on the style of the great Hermitage Blancs of the Northern Rhone Valley. We aim for richness, minerality and hedonism in this, our most premium white wine. The style is typically lower in acid and high in phenolic content, which provides richness on the palate and requisite phenolics to age. While floral, bright in fruit and pretty in youth this wine should age to become savoury, complex and decadent in years to come. Our Roussanne is fermented and aged in stainless steel to maintain acidity and fruit f... Read More »
