Tasting Notes

The exuberant 2007 Hermitage Blanc reveals notes of petroleum, crushed rocks, earth, white currants and peaches, an unctuous texture, high glycerin and good acidity. This big, thick white Hermitage will not be as long lived as the 2009, but for drinking over the next two decades, it is impossible to resist. Jean-Louis and Gerard Chave opened a bottle of the 2003 Hermitage Blanc to give me an idea of how this vintage is aging. This monumental offering, which flirts with perfection, has virtually no acidity and is aging beautifully. The Chaves believe it is a repeat of what Gerard’s father made in 1929.

Provenance

Seller:I began collecting during University in my early 20's while working retail for an Ontario winery. Initially I was drawn to the wines of Italy, but over time began to focus on French wines, especially Burgundy. I have always had a great appreciation for white wine, particularly for the wines of Chablis, Loire, Austria and Germany. Generally I purchased wines from the LCBO and directly from agents ( I keep all my invoices and probably have digital or paper copies of invoices for everything).The wines have been stored at home, in temperature controlled, specially built wine cellars.
