Description

Bottled in August, Chave’s 2016 Hermitage Blanc is a tremendous wine. It’s a bit closed on the nose (bottle shock?), but it wows on the palate, rocking it with seismic waves of super ripe pineapple and melon fruit and more than a small dose of what I can only describe as magma-like essence of stone. It’s full-bodied and mouthfilling in its richness, yet it never seems heavy or overdone. Remember that yields were constrained by hail, so don’t delay in procuring whatever your budget will allow.

– Joe Czerwinski, Robertparker.com, Score: 98

Remarkably concentrated yet poised, with acacia and honeysuckle notes leading the way for a core of creamed melon, quince, mirabelle plum and white nectarine flavors. The long brioche- and salted butter–fueled finish shows terrific cut for a wine of this weight, ending with a lingering beeswax hint. A stunner. Marsanne and Roussanne. Best from 2022 through 2045. 47 cases imported.
