Cellar/Tasting Notes
The Chave name is one of the oldest in the wine world as they have been producing one of the world's greatest wines since 1481. The family moved to Hermitage following the phylloxera epidemic that ruined a majority of Europe's vineyards in the late 19th century. The wine was then produced in Mauves and is still produced there today.

The Hermitage Blanc, an elegant wine from a legendary winery is full bodied, rich and balanced.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 95
"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."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 94
"Bright yellow. Mineral-driven aromas of white peach, nectarine, orange zest and anise, plus an exotic note of yellow Chartreuse. Fleshy orchard and pit fruit flavors enter with very good breadth and richness but the minerality clamps the fruit down in the middle palate and a zesty, peppery element contributes lift and cut. Extremely young and not offering much in the way of complexity on the palate now. The strong, incisive finish strongly echoes the spice and mineral notes. This one demands patience."
Wine Spectator (WS): 95
"Ripe and dense, but pure and beautifully rendered, with gorgeous mango, quince, fig and pear fruit flavors woven together and offset by quinine, paraffin and blanched almond notes. The finish just sings with fruit, minerality and a kiss of toast."
