    Superintense, with a nearly searing minerality, this lets fleur de sel, blanched almond, chamomile and jasmine rice flavors race through, while papaya and Cavaillon melon notes fill in the background. Has a long, amazingly pure finish.

    The lightest colored of the three whites, the 2006 Ermitage l'Ermite Blanc is unquestionably one of the greatest white wines in the world today. Full-bodied, seamless, silky and yet hugely concentrated, with to-die-for notes of praline, caramelized fruits, liquid rock, toasted almonds and celery seed, it’s the quintessential Hermitage Blanc possessing an incredible amount of fruit and texture paired with elegance, purity and finesse.

    Yellow-gold. Wonderfully complex bouquet of spicy citrus, pear and melon complicated by dusty minerals, smoky lees and fresh rose. Fleshy but focused on the palate, offering spicy orchard fruit flavors, lemon pith and sweet tangerine on the finish. Gained weight with air without any loss of energy or clarity, picking up exotic spice and licorice flavors with air. There are only 228 cases of this juice.
