#77 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2015 -
WA 94 WS 93 IWC 92 W&S 90 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - "A worthy follow-up to the stunning 2011, the 2012 Ermitage Chante Alouette is a knockout effort that boasts tons of mineral-laced stone fruits, tangerine and honeysuckle to go with a medium to full-bodied, textured, yet laser-focused feel on the palate. A classic Hermitage Blanc, it should not be missed."
According to Wine Spectator - "Salted butter, chamomile, lemon rind and white peach notes course along, inlaid with honeysuckle and verbena hints. Mineral- driven finish. Drink now through 2022."
According to International Wine Cellar - "Vivid gold. Spicy lemon pith and pear aromas are complemented by notes of anise and white pepper. Tight and dry in the mouth, offering zesty citrus fruit flavors and subtle smokiness. Finishes smooth and spicy, with very good length and building minerality."
According to Wine & Spirits -" Pineapple-ripe and padded with the richness of oak, this is marsanne at its most bodacious. Blended from three parts of the Hermitage hill, it speaks of the richer, warmer soils of the lower half, and of the sun that bathes the slope." 13.5% ABV.
