Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

L'Hermitage Blanc Marsanne Roussanne 2013

Tasted alongside the 1996 and while this was very good, it was also very primary. However, thanks to the 1996, it was very easy to tell where the 2013 is headed. If you have these, I highly recommend you hold for at least another 10 years so it can begin showing more secondary characteristics. — 14 days ago

Great terroir wine from a not so common grape. Honey, quince and lots of creaminess. Drink or hold. — a month ago

Hermitage Blanc Marsanne Roussanne 1996

Tasted alongside the 2013 and this was absolutely extraordinary. Tremendous depth. This is what I’ve always wanted out of white Rhône wines and of course, it took a well aged Chave to deliver. — 14 days ago

Fresher than last bottle. I like the oxidative notes and how they play off the fruit and exquisite balance in these wine. Special stuff. — a month ago

Le Chevalier de Sterimberg Blanc Hermitage Marsanne Roussanne

2020 vintage. Wow! Beautiful aromatics with tangerine, peach, lemon confit ,flowers and a stony minerality. Layers of ripe white fruits, balanced by a tight acidic backbone and an impressively long mineral finish. Irresistible now, but this should age beautifully for at least 20 years. Abv. 13%. — a month ago

Golden color. Waxy, heavy and viscous. Honey, apricot, quince, vanilla and furniture cleaner on the nose. I never know if I like Rhône whites. On one hand it is complex and nicely developed and on the other hand it’s oxidized and flabby. Such a big wine it really needs food. Amazingly well made and great texture but again not sure I love it — a month ago

Blancaneaux Rutherford Roussanne Blend 2015

Who could have thought the flagship white from a Napa historic estate is a Rhone blend?
And I could not tell from the nose, with lemon zest, apricot, and bruised apple presented but quite subdued. There is also notes of green veggies and hint of white floral. The palate is broad, nicely textured, and minerals. Not showing any sign of age, but I don’t think it will improve with further aging.
53% Viognier/33% Roussanne/14% Marsanne brought up in 100% stainless steel.
