2007 M. Chapoutier "L'Ermite" Ermitage Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1054271

98-100 points Robert Parker: "Another candidate for perfection is the 2007 Ermitage l'Ermite blanc. A nectar of rocks, honeysuckle, quince, pears, and white peaches, this super-expressive, full-bodied, thick, glycerin-endowed wine is another example of a massive white Hermitage that can not be found anywhere else in the world. It should last for 35-50 years." (04/09) 94 points Wine Spectator: "This has layers of creamy fig, pear, peach and apple fruit flavors, laced with grilled hazelnut and sweetened butter notes that glide through the very long, very precise finish. Beautifully rendered for the vintage. Drink now through 2019." (Insider, 2/10) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light yellow-gold. Leesy apple and orange aromas are complemented by cinnamon, allspice and marzipan nuances. Round, supple and impressively deep, offering luscious peach and pear nectar flavors and gentle citrus lift. An alluring, accessible white Hermitage that is delicious now but has the depth and balance to reward at least a few years of patience. The finish doesn't want to quit." (Jan/Feb 2009)

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
