Hermitage Blanc

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave, Hermitage Blanc, 2016

RRP £230

At once floral and fruity, this is beautifully aromatic and open already. There are touches of ripe apricot and marzipan. It’s rounded but not overly full-bodied, beautifully rich and pure and very well balanced. It has a precise, mineral-flecked frame and a remarkable sense of finesse and line for Hermitage Blanc. A totally captivating wine, that will be hard not to drink young, but will glide on, gaining complexity through the years thanks to its perfect balance. A wine to fall in love with, you’ll never want it to end.
