This shows stunning purity and range of flavors, with blanched almond, chamomile, green fig, persimmon and apricot notes all weaving around a core of heather honey and brioche. The long finish resonates with minerality. Best from 2010 through 2025. *Collectibles* (JM)
(93% marsanne and 7% roussanne, raised for 30 months in new barriques Light yellow. Kaleidoscopic bouquet of singed orange, musky herbs, potpourri, brown butter, smoky minerals, tarragon and fresh bay. Weighty citrus and dried pit fruit and cherry(!) flavors are complicated by candied licorice, botanical herbs and toasted grain, completely saturating the palate. This has the texture of a red wine, and some of the same flavors too, but there's also striking finesse and clarity. The finish clings endlessly, repeating the smoke and mineral notes. (JR)
A wine I’ve been lucky enough to have numerous times over the past year, the 2005 Hermitage Ex Voto Blanc is right in the middle of its drink window and has classic aromatics of sautéed stone fruits, buttered nuts, caramel, toasted bread and even a hint of licorice. Voluptuous, rounded and sexy, it’s a quintessential Hermitage Blanc that does everything right. Drink it over the coming 10-15+ years. (JD)
