  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95

    Light yellow-gold. High-pitched aromas of fresh citrus fruits, smoky minerals, white flowers and sweet butter. Concentrated but lithe and sharply focused, with impressive floral lift to its orange, pear skin and mineral flavors. The mineral element carries through the finish, which clings with superb energy and spicy persistence.

    This white delivers a weighty core of honey-edged melon, yellow apple, jasmine and white peach flavors, but the wine is racy and vibrant overall, with dried chamomile, quinine and fleur de sel notes running from start to finish. The finish ripples with energy and minerality, while the fruit courses on.

    White wine simply doesn't get any better than the 2012 Ermitage l'Ermite Blanc. A massive, concentrated, yet insanely pure and focused effort, it has an incredible bouquet (almond paste, orange rind, caramelized peach), full-bodied richness, no hard edges and finish that just won't quit. Of all the 2012 whites, this has the most minerality, purity and precision. I'd happily drink it anytime over the coming 3-4 decades.
