Hermitage Blanc Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Uk Only Bottle 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Parker review: After tasting through the different vineyards that go into the 2007 Hermitage blanc (Peleat, Rocoules, Meal, and l'Ermite), this appears to be another outstanding white Hermitage, and a candidate for the white Hermitage of the vintage. Several of the cuvees, especially l'Ermite, Meal, and Rocoules, merited scores in the high 90s, and Peleat was rated in the mid-90s. Aromas of white flowers, quince, and honeyed citrus, zesty acidity, and sensational concentration make an appearance in this extraordinary white. It is a magnificent example of power combined with elegance. This 2007 white Hermitage should evolve for 25-30+ years.<br/><br/><strong>(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Apr 09)</strong>
