Bright gold. Heady, mineral-powered citrus and orchard fruit aromas are complicated by jasmine, honey and iodine. Weighty and broad but showing unlikely vivacity to its ripe pear and orange flavors, which are sharpened by intense minerality. Delivers impressive clarity on the finish, which clings with outstanding tenacity and a suave floral quality.
Always more dense, backward and focused, the 2011 Ermitage L’Ermite Blanc has everything I could want out of a white. Flower oil, apricot, honeysuckle, brioche, powdered rock and assorted tropical notes are just some of the nuances here, and this incredible wine is full-bodied and massive, yet elegant, fresh and delineated. Count yourself lucky if you’re able to latch onto a couple of these!
Ripe and rich, with a warm piecrust frame around a core of salted butter, creamed Jonagold apple, verbena, shortbread and candied citrus rind, which all pump through the finish. Well-embedded acidity keeps this driving along. The finish is sneakily long, with a mineral element mixing with the ripe fruit. Best from 2016 through 2026. From France.óJ.M.
