Heiner Lobenberg über:
Ermitage L’Ermite blanc 2021


Lobenberg: Ein sehr mineral-betonter Hermitage, der klare-steinige Aromen, Tiefe und Struktur aufweist und dabei immer noch mit ungeheurer Frische überrascht. Der beste Weißwein der Rhone 2021 und das mag bedeuten, der beste Weißwein der Rhone up to now. 100+/100


Suckling über: Ermitage L’Ermite blanc

-- Suckling: The nose is like an essence of Mirabelle plums that pulls you into its tight inner orbit like a huge yellow star. This starts so quietly, but expands and expands as it flows over your palate in a way that’s not quite like any other white Rhone I can remember. How can a wine with such gigantic concentration have such perfect balance? The most amazing thing is the way the toasty richness interacts with the primal stony side of the wine: two faces of the same coin. Limited production. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.


Parker über: Ermitage L’Ermite blanc

-- Parker: The 2021 Ermitage l'Ermite Blanc was tasted one month prior to bottling, hence the parenthetical rating. Scents of crushed stone accent notes of apricot, pineapple and lime on the nose, while the palate is medium to full-bodied. In the mouth, this is straight, almost severe; it tells you when to jump and how high, with zesty, briny notes lingering long on the finish.


Decanter über: Ermitage L’Ermite blanc

-- Decanter: Piercing intensity on the nose, there's mango, candied citrus peels and salt. Only medium-bodied, but it's an athletic, precise and hugely energetic Ermite, with really driving, focused acidity and immense salty minerality. Straight, long, and intense. Rather than the extract and concentration of some recent warmer vintages, this has immense drive. 98/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Ermitage L’Ermite blanc

-- Jeb Dunnuck: Not yet bottled (this cuvée always sees a slightly longer élevage), the 2021 Ermitage L'Ermite Blanc comes from a mix of limestone and granite soils and is still resting in 25% new demi-muids. If there's a white of the vintage, this might be it. Honeyed lemons, quince, mango, and a liqueur of rocks-like minerality all define the aromatics, and it's medium to full-bodied, deep, concentrated, and pure, with an undeniable salinity on the finish. As usual, this tight, focused, and backward Hermitage needs at least 3-4 years of bottle age. 96-98/100

Mein Winzer


Seit der Gründung im Jahre 1808 hat jede Generation aus dem Hause Chapoutier auf eigene Weise dazu beigetragen, ihre Weine zu weltweiten Spitzenprodukten zu entwickeln. Das größte bisheriges Wagnis war die komplette Umstellung der Produktion der Einzellagen auf biodynamischen Weinanbau. Hier wacht...
