Chateau l'Ermitage Cuvée Tradition Blanc 2010
The harmony of the blending brings a smell of fresh white fruits: peaches, pears, litchis and white flowers’ pollen. The Grenache provides the richness and the Roussanne the balancing acidity. Great as an aperitif, but also with asparagus, White meat like veal chops. This wine can be drunk right now or within the next two years.
External Reviews for Chateau l'Ermitage Cuvée Tradition Blanc
This traditional Rhône white is a blend of three grapes, all from low-yielding vines. The aromas are of fresh white fruits - peaches, pears - with litchee and pollen. The Grenache provides richness, while the Roussanne adds balancing acidity. Enjoy this wine with white meats, fish, risotto and salads.
Tired of the ubiquitous watery Pinot Grigios out there? Try this: a fuller-bodied white made from classic grapes of the Côtes du Rhône: Rousanne, Viognier and Grenache Blanc. Floral aromas waft from the glass, followed by the mouth-coating, low acid mouthfeel, and a surprisingly long finish for a white. Delicious, unoaked alternative to your favorite Chardonnay.
A lovely crisp and light wine offering hints of mineral and citrus peel and a hint of mint on the finish. Enjoy at the start of a meal with a salad or on its own.
This blend of classic white Rhone grapes has floral aromas, mouthcoating flavors and a surprisingly long finish for a white. A delicious, unoaked alternative to Chardonnay and a fuller-bodied option for Pinot Grigio drinkers.
I find that the white wines from Rhône are interesting and fresh. The blend of this wine is 50% Roussane, 40% Grenache and 10% Viognier. The wine has been aged on fine lees for three months, which really brings out the fruit characteristics. Beautifully balanced with acidity and body, this white wine can be great with food, or just to sip on its own. Pair with creamy seafood dishes or a roasted chicken with mashed potatoes.
