COLOR: Brilliant and limpid straw yellow. NOSE: Complex aromas of vanilla, almonds, dried fruits and linden-tree. The minerality is marked (typical of the soil). MOUTH: Very round and rich wine. An elegant balance, with a light bitterness at the end. Very ripe white fruit aromas (peach and apricot). Beautiful length in mouth and a huge complexity. According to the vintage, the wine can be kept from 30 to 60 years, indeed from 50 to 75 years.

Wine SpectatorRich but racy, with a core of melon, white peach and yellow apple fruit streaming through, carried by a mouthwatering quinine note. The finish is gilded with honeysuckle and jasmine details, giving this lift and brightness. A light salted butter accent at the end brings you back for more. Drink now through 2030. 12 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe wine of the vintage (and I'll include all the wines of the northern Rhône, red and white in that grouping) is the 2014 Ermitage l'Ermite Blanc. Always made from 100% Marsanne that comes from the granite soils of the l'Hermite lieu-dit, it was aged 11 months in 25% new demi-muids before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Its medium-gold color is followed by a heavenly bouquet of liquid rock, hazelnut, caramelized pineapples, stone fruits and quince. Thick, unctuous, full-bodied, thrillingly pure and laser focused with a dry, blockbuster finish that just won't quit, it needs 2-3 years of cellaring and will drink nicely over the following three or more decades.
