J L Chave Hermitage Blanc 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The Chave family have been growers and wine makers since 1472! Thomas Jefferson didn't get around to Hermitage until about 300 years later when he declared that Heritage was the greatest white in the country. So much for Montrachet!"This is *an exquisite wine* with fabulous fruit intensity. Lots of acacia flower, anise, quince, fig and pineapple intermixed with a hint of white peaches emerge from this well-delineated, full-bodied, enormously endowed, complex, dry white Hermitage."Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

NB vintage. Bottled Sep 2012. Great tang and lift as well as a sensation of liquid honey. Very youthful. Floral notes on a honey base. Remarkably racy ad sinewy for the well hidden potency. Broad and gorgeous with fabulous lift. Tastes as though you ... Jancis Robinson. A Marsanne wine from Rhone in France. 2010 J L Chave Hermitage Blanc 750ml
