95 points James Halliday: "A long-time champion of marsanne, Tahbilk celebrates both its youthful energy and its aged beauty across a range of wines. Here we see the latter in all of its near-ageless allure, maintaining the honeysuckle, citrus, appley brightness of its youth while starting to build on its earlier promise of beeswax smooth texture with a developing gentle toastiness. Another stunning museum release. It's hard to believe it's six years old." (05/2023)

95 points James Halliday: "Small yields in ’22 at Tahbilk, but big rewards in the glass with this concentrated, fully expressive young marsanne. Hits some rare notes in mid-palate texture and length – so early in its life, too. Citrus blossom, honeysuckle, green almond, Meyer lemon and pear aromas lead into a wine with all the ingredients for developing complexity. The varietal trademarks are lining up nicely, led by lemon-bright acidity, spring floral and citrus flavours with potential plus for further ageing. Exactly what you want and expect from a mak...

95 points James Halliday: "1927 Vines is fine example of the amazing versatility of the marsanne grape. It is probably its purest expression, capturing its essential beauty early and then allowing bottle age to bring complexity. From 2016 we see lovely florals emerging on the bouquet, showing signature honeysuckle, grilled grapefruit and almond development. Belies its age with a youthful energy and drive across the palate, lively acidity matched by a soft texture. By no means at its peak." (05/2022)

2020 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage Blanc
Top Pick!
99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another heavenly white from this estate is the 2020 Hermitage Blanc, which is the usual 80% Marsanne and 20% Roussanne from a mix lieux-dits. Incredibly perfumed with notes of acacia flowers, buttered stone fruits, toasted brioche, honeysuckle, and crushed stone, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a seamless, layered texture, beautiful mid-palate depth, and a great finish. The purity, balance, and intensity here are just about off the charts, and this beauty deserves a solid decade of bottle age, although you'll be excu...

95 points James Suckling: "This amazing white St.-Joseph literally smells like crushed rock! Then comes a texturally complex full-bodied palate that’s richer and creamier than the nose suggests, then, it turns back in the radical stony direction, growing in power as it does. Just doesn’t want to stop! From a clay rich soil. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold." (05/2023) 93 points Decanter: "A lovely light and floral style on the nose, and on the palate it’s only medium-bodied this year, not as rich as a typical vintage, and much higher in aci...
Price: $109.99

Composed of 40% Marsanne, 30% Ugni Blanc, 25% Clairette, and 5% Bourboulenc that aged in stainless steel tanks and two 500L demi-muids on its fine lees until spring or early summer bottling. *Certified Organic*
Price: $39.99

95 points Decanter: "A touch of rubbery reduction on the nose for now. It's full-bodied, fairly concentrated, and generous. There’s wonderful freshness, a particularly strong mineral expression. Finishes on a touch of toasty oak. A great vintage of Les Granits. A very granitic expression from an east-facing plot in lieu-dit St-Joseph, near Mauves. (MW)" (09/2022) 93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Saint Joseph wasn't affected by the frost, so the production of the 2021 Saint Joseph Les Granits Blanc is healthy. It's a terrific wine as well and offers a medium gol...
Price: $59.99

99 points Decanter: "Decidedly rich in style, the oak is quite marked, with roasted pineapple notes, lemon verbena and lemon thyme. Very full-bodied, this is massive, assertive and powerful, but with great freshness and energy. Flinty, smoky elements and a long, salty, mineral finish. One for the ages. Pure Marsanne, vines are over 50 years old, planted on pebbles, clay and some loess, facing south. Whole-bunch pressed, half fermented in demi-muids, half in vats. (MW)" (11/2023) K&L Notes: John Livingstone Learmonth The Cradle of the Rhone: "full yello...
Price: $199.99

98 points Decanter: "Surprisingly full-bodied for L'Ermite, richer in body than a classic vintage. This is precise and fine, with notes of lemon verbena and struck flint. Reductive now, so give it time, but there's great drive and focus. Unusually high acidity (3.2-3.3 pH) which is rare for Marsanne. From east-facing vineyards situated around the chapel, which are the only white vineyards on the granitic part of Hermitage, other than Dard & Ribo's plots. Drinking window: 2025-2055. (MW)" (11/2023) K&L Notes: John Livingstone Learmonth The Cradle of the...
Price: $469.99

97 points Decanter: "This has the characteristic breadth and fat of De l'Orée, with a surprisingly bright and piercing acidic line. Rich, ripe mango, with a touch of pineapple, the alcohol and oak are both surprisingly well balanced for a vintage like 2022. Not the most mineral or fine perhaps, but very good. From 60-year-old vines in the lieu-dit Les Murets at the top of the hill on heavy, water-retaining soils. (MW)" (11/2023) K&L Notes: John Livingstone Learmonth the Cradle of the Rhone: "attractive yellow; the nose carries a discreet honeysuckle, f...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Leading off the three single vineyard Marsanne releases, the 2021 Ermitage De L'Orée comes mostly from the Les Murets lieu-dit and was aged 12 months in 80% demi-muids, with just 15% being new. It has a beautiful nose of white flowers, stone fruits, quince, and some obvious chalky minerality. It reminds me slightly of the 2012 (though the vintages are nothing alike) and is medium to full-bodied, has a round, supple texture, beautiful balance, and a great finish. It's a brilliant effort, particularly given the vintage." (12/2022) ...
Price: $199.99

98 points Decanter: "Piercing intensity on the nose, there's mango, candied citrus peels and salt. Only medium-bodied, but it's an athletic, precise and hugely energetic Ermite, with really driving, focused acidity and immense salty minerality. Straight, long, and intense. Rather than the extract and concentration of some recent warmer vintages, this has immense drive. (MW)" (09/2022) 96-98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Not yet bottled (this cuvée always sees a slightly longer élevage), the 2021 Ermitage L'Ermite Blanc comes from a mix of limestone and granite ...
Price: $449.99

94 points Decanter: "Full-bodied, silky and fresh. The reduction is well controlled, a touch of struck match brings complexity. Fine, elegant, bold but well balanced. From the east-facing lieu-dit St-Joseph. Drinking window: 2024-2035. (MW)" (11/2023) K&L Notes: John Livingstone Learmonth The Cradle of the Rhone: "deep yellow; the bouquet is firm, well centred, has a ginger, salted tone, a cooked peach air. The palate bears suave content with a fine level of freshness, extends with a sure grace, its oiliness and suave feel appealing. It can develop fur...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "On another level, the 2019 Ermitage Ex Voto Blanc is more reductive and tight, with a brilliant, concentrated, full-bodied, layered profile on the palate. White currants, quinces, scorched earth, and charcoal all define this backward, primary beast of a wine that will probably merit a triple digit rating in 4-5 years. It should have decades of longevity. (JD)" (02/2022) 97 points Decanter: "A dense, aromatically imposing wine despite the fact it's fairly closed at this early stage, giving little away. Very full-bodied indeed, fu...
