2018 Ferraton Père et Fils "Le Reverdy" Ermitage Blanc

SKU #1531771 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Playing with the top wines in the appellation, the 2018 Hermitage Le Reverdy Blanc comes from the Les Beaumes and Le Méal lieux-dits and is equal parts Marsanne and Roussanne aged in 30% new French oak. It needs air to show at its best yet has powerful notes of honeyed quince and stone fruits intermixed with more exotic citrus, tangerine, and flower oil nuances. It has bright acidity, a rocking level of concentration, terrific balance, and subtle, integrated oak. It’s going to benefit from a year or two of bottle age and cruise for a decade or more. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Vibrant, mineral-accented aromas of fresh pear, Meyer lemon and yellow plum pick up hints of anise and quinine with air. Juicy and chewy in texture, offering densely packed orchard and pit fruit flavors that are sharpened by a refreshingly bitter lemon pith accent. Finishes minerally, taut and very long, leaving bitter citrus pith and floral notes behind. Fermented with whole bunches and aged in oak demi-muids. (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Creamed yellow apple, Cavaillon melon and white nectarine fruit flavors meld nicely, backed with a lemon curd note and stitched with verbena and honeysuckle on the very engaging finish. (JM) Inner quote mark (8/2021)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A ripe, honeyed blend of fruit from Le Méal and Les Beaumes, Ferraton's 2018 Ermitage Blanc Le Reverdy is even better than I remember it last time around. Hints of peach and tangerine give the impression of terrific ripeness, yet this medium to full-bodied wine never seems overly dense or heavy, remaining fresh and zesty on the lingering finish. (JC) Inner quote mark (5/2021)
