    Another candidate for perfection is the 2007 Ermitage l'Ermite blanc. A nectar of rocks, honeysuckle, quince, pears, and white peaches, this super-expressive, full-bodied, thick, glycerin-endowed wine is another example of a massive white Hermitage that can not be found anywhere else in the world. It should last for 35-50 years.

    Light yellow-gold. Leesy apple and orange aromas are complemented by cinnamon, allspice and marzipan nuances. Round, supple and impressively deep, offering luscious peach and pear nectar flavors and gentle citrus lift. An alluring, accessible white Hermitage that is delicious now but has the depth and balance to reward at least a few years of patience. The finish doesn't want to quit.

    This has layers of creamy fig, pear, peach and apple fruit flavors, laced with grilled hazelnut and sweetened butter notes that glide through the very long, very precise finish. Beautifully rendered for the vintage.

    Very deep gold. More lifted than Le M‚al. Broad and sumptuous - a feast of nuance but not at all sweet. Very terroir driven and mineral - in the way that, say, Heymann L”wenstein's Lower Mosel wines are but, perhaps counter-intuitively, much more delicate and better balanced. More tension than Le M‚al, which tastes very slightly flabby after this.
