De l'Orée Ermitage Blanc Marsanne 2001

After having tasted two suboptimal white Hermitages last saturday, I have to admit that it can be a hit-and-miss when it comes to aging Rhône blancs....
But this one slightly restores my faith in doing so.
Golden colour, spicy tropical fruit, juicy and sappy in the midpalate and a long, rich and satisfying finish. No distracting notes of oxidation.
A wonderful bottle from a good but not a great vintage.

Magnum. Earthy/meaty and awesome. Rustic wild herbs, cured meats, pepper spice, beef jerky, boysenberry and nice acid. Thanks Doug! — 6 days ago

Saint-Peray Marsanne 2017

Lights out good! Subtle, textural, balanced glycerol richness and phenolic bite, very and lively given its curves. Bosc pear, pineapple, yellow apple, white flowers, lees, hazelnut and a touch of nutmeg and spice. These are downright delicious white Rhônes that have failed to disappoint — 12 days ago

Solid Tuesday evening wine.
Worthy mention of colour, acid, creaminess and texture.

L'Hermitage Blanc Marsanne Roussanne 2012

Seafood tower and...Fabulous bottle! Starting to enter its window. Rich but not heavy, fresh with bitter elements that blend nicely to offer contrast between its gras and broad fruit. I found it to be quite lively on the palate without sacrificing classic Hermitage blanc character. A true vin de terroir. Great evolution over a couple hours of air. — 4 days ago

Santa Ynez Valley Marsanne Roussanne 2006

This is delightful. Bee pollen, honey suckle, lemon meringue, Meyer lemon..that’s the nose. That all transfers so well to the palate, but with added orange blossom honey and thyme (something herbal). Still good acidity and life to this wine. I wish I had more to try in a few years. — 3 days ago

Le Méal Blanc Hermitage Marsanne 2008

I fell in love with this wine the first time I tried it. Paired it tonight with lobster risotto. Wow. The honey color is amazing, the depth is incredible. Just enough oak to give it character without overwhelming the complexity. Outstanding — a month ago
