Made from numerous parcels, this white Hermitage is ripe, textured and sensuous, with a mineral, tannic texture and a long, precise finish. Who says 2015’s just for the reds…?

TASTING NOTES

70-year-old vines from lieu-dit Maison Blanche. Fairly closed at time of tasting, with some lime and yellow plum. Powerful on the palate, crystalline and stony. A rich style, but takes its richness and power from the fruit rather than oak, which serves to underline its inner freshness.
