Tasting Notes

I was shocked by the 2007 Ermitage le Meal Blanc and from a vintage that yielded mostly forward, supple and approachable efforts, it has stunning concentration, density, depth and texture. Still light/medium gold in color, it offers classic crushed-rock-like minerality, licorice, charcoal and sautéed peach characteristics to go with a lively, fresh, yet full-bore and decadent profile on the palate. It has the concentration and purity to evolve for decades, but is mind-blowing stuff today.

Score: 99

The fattest, most exuberant cuvee, with off the charts concentration and density (almost overbearing in its intensity, but the acids are there), is the 2007 Ermitage Le Meal blanc. An extraordinary expression of a single vineyard white Hermitage, this is an elixir with shocking levels of concentration. It goes almost beyond what dry wine is, and that’s what makes it so special.

Score: 98 - 100
