All from the Dionnieres lieu-dit, the 2017 Hermitage Les Miaux Blanc is 100% Marsanne brought up in 80% demi-muids, with the balance in stainless steel. Its medium gold color is followed by a beautiful perfume of liquid rocks, flowers oil, tangerine, and citrus blossom. It has a certain exotic quality aromatically yet is classic Marsanne on the palate with medium to full body, bright acidity, plenty of fruit, and a clean, balanced finish.
Solidly built, with ripe white peach, yellow apple and green plum notes mixed together kaleidoscopically. The finish is carried by a zing of bitter almond and quinine that adds tension and length to the showy fruit. (JM)
From fruit grown on clay-limestone subsoil with large pebbles on the surface, fermented at a fairly low temperature by indigenous yeasts then aged on fine lees, partly in oak barrels and partly in vats. It's full, rich and flowing, with some freshly cut rhubarb stalk and a gentle bitter twist that helps bring refreshment. It's not overoaked, unlike so many of its peers. A drinkable wine that's relatively pure and unforced. (MW)
The 100% Marsanne 2017 Hermitage Les Miaux Blanc boasts slinky aromas of pencil shavings, pear and melon. Medium to full-bodied, it's nevertheless bright and fresh on the palate, ending on harmonious and invigorating notes of citrus zest. It's delicious now, but it should be richer and more nuanced after 8-10 years in the cellar. (JC)
