L’Ermite (0.75 L)
My favorite of the white Hermitages, the 2016 Ermitage l’Ermite Blanc boasts aromas of gently toasted marshmallow and ripe pear. It’s full-bodied and generous, with a rich, grainy texture balanced by brine and zest notes. While it can be enjoyed now, my feeling is that it will get better over the next decade, then drink well for at least another decade after that.
