Amazing vintage for this. Nose is all piquant and elegant minerals. Some flowers and tons of yellow fruit. Smells clear. Palate is spectacular if young. Juicy and so textured with wonderful purity and freshness. Stunning balance and length and awesome texture. Almost tannic on the finish. Much better in 5-7 years but sick today. — 9 days ago

Le Méal Blanc Hermitage Marsanne 2009

My WWOTN this really had next level cred. Bursting bouquet of petrol/acetone/flint gives way to an unctuous an oily mouthfeel and notes of toasted honey, waxy yellow fruit and a full bodied finish. A real attention grabber that’s not quite yet at the level of the ‘05 I had in November but I feel it could certainly surpass it with 5 more years in the bottle. — 11 days ago

Rocking Roussanne. The freshness on the palate of these micro cuvee St. Perays is just unreal. They drink like nothing else in the Rhone. If Pur Blanc is the Montrachet of the lineup then this is the Chevalier as this is an awesome elegant Roussanne. Like Grand Cru level. Stunning nose. So complex, yellow fruits, pear, mineral, tree bark, earthy, quince but so refined and clear. Amazingly clear actually. Yellow plum. The palate is masterful. Concentrated yet so elegant with such texture and just awesome balance. This is next level Roussanne made in tiny batches. What finish. Fruit is plum, yellow peach, mango, papaya, but so fresh and not vulgar. All class. Just nuts. — 14 days ago

Hermitage Blanc Marsanne Roussanne 2000

Beautiful fresh and aromatic nose of almonds, peaches and apricots. I love that this had very little of that “weight” that is common in Northern Rhône whites. The palate was filled with honey, orange marmalade, almonds and minerals. Lovely complexity combined with a great acidic spine. — 3 days ago

Crozes-Hermitage Blanc Marsanne-Roussanne Blend 2017

I tell ya what, this is a lot more interesting than the Roussanne that we drank a couple weeks ago from Paso Robles. This has the acid that the Villa Creek lacked. There was a nice mix of slightly underripe pineapple, orange peel and honeysuckle. This probably needs a few years in the bottle to be honest. Still, pretty enjoyable and I’ll definitely keep this on my shortlist of northern Rhône whites to keep an eye out for. — 7 days ago
