2009 Ferraton Pere & Fils "Le Reverdy" Ermitage Blanc

SKU #1329164 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The outrageously rich 2009 Ermitage Le Reverdy blanc (a 70-case blend of 80% Marsanne and 20% Roussanne) possesses honeyed marmalade notes intermixed with hints of candle wax, quince, white currants and ginger. Unfortunately, it will be difficult to latch on to a bottle of this delicious white given the tiny production. (RP)  (12/2011)

94 points Wine Spectator

 Ripe and concentrated, but very pure and nicely defined, with the core of chamomile, salted butter, creamed melon, white peach and pear notes all held in check for now with a strong quinine edge. Should unwind with moderate cellaring. Best from 2012 through 2018. 66 cases made. (JM)  (9/2011)

92 points Vinous

 (made from a 50/50 blend of marsanne and roussanne): Bright gold. Complex, fragrant aromas of peach pit, melon and candied orange, with musky herb and mineral qualities gaining power with air. Lush and expansive on the palate, offering intense pit fruit and anise flavors lifted by zesty minerality. Rich but lithe wine with excellent finishing clarity and a persistent note of dried citrus fruits. (JR)  (3/2012)

Additional Information:

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.
