International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 118

($166) Less exuberant than the Cuvee de l'Oree but also superripe and deep, hinting at candied fruit, honey, clove and minerals. Fatter, sweeter and more open today, with a very ripe flavor of pear syrup. More marked by the oak. Very large-scaled, powerful wine, with a somewhat warm finish. Very 2003 in style, and (but?) likely to be long-lived.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 163

Like the concentrated essence of bee's honey with resiny, flower, and mineral notes, the 2003 Ermitage Le Meal blanc is a huge, full-bodied, even tannic effort with amazing viscosity and thickness. This is a wine to drink young, or forget for two decades. To Chapoutier's credit, he is making these wines for posterity, not for immediate gratification.

Wine Spectator Author: James Molesworth

On the shy side aromatically (for now) this sneaks up on you with waves of almond, mango, papaya and glazed pear flavors. The texture is like coconut milk, the powerful finish is long and full of minerality. Great spine here, with marvelous balance. 300 cases made.
