2022 M. Chapoutier "L'Ermite" Ermitage Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1709046 98 points Decanter

Outer quote mark 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) Inner quote mark (11/2023)

K&L Notes

John Livingstone Learmonth The Cradle of the Rhone: "full yellow; the nose has an oily depth, isn’t obvious, has a buttery, layered manner, suggestions of white peach, licorice, interesting variety to come. The palate is most elegant on attack, a real smooth ride, with engaging white fruits, the gras nicely in place, a little firm for now. It has good structure, and ageing potential, with persistence in its cool fruits, orange-citrus touches on the aftertaste. It’s more complex than the Méal blanc 2022, has good balance. “It has power, freshness, texture,” Clément Bärtschi, cellar master. From 2025. 2045-47." (10/2023)
