Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 100
"The 2010 Ermitage l’Ermite Blanc, which comes from pure granite soils, is a perfect wine. This awesome white, made from pre-phylloxera vines that are not grafted onto American root stocks, offers notes of acacia flowers, orange and nectarine oils, a liquid rock-like component and a full-bodied, multidimensional and multilayered finish. As the great French wine critic Michel Bettane said about l'Ermite in many different vintages, it is "greater than the greatest Montrachet." This is a 50- to 75-year white wine."

"Light yellow-gold. Pungent aromas of dried pit fruits, white truffle, smoky minerals and iodine. Deep and mouthfilling, with a tactile quality and explosive peach, pear and floral flavors. Expands impressively on the back half, showing velvety texture and excellent focus on the smoky, relentless finish. This complex, palate-staining wine could do some damage in a tasting of grand cru white Burgundies."
