Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Hermitage Ex-Voto blanc is a powerful, aromatic wine offering notes of crushed rocks, quince, orange marmalade, white peaches, and honeysuckle with spicy oak in the background. This dense, unctuously-textured offering is a promising white Hermitage that should drink well for three decades. 91-95"

"Deep yellow. Exotically perfumed bouquet of wild, herb-laced tropical and pit fruits, with notes of licorice and dried fig emerging with air; reminds me of an old Chartreuse. Deep, chewy and very rich, with gently sweet apricot, peach and dried pear flavors and notes of botanical herbs. Smoky, surprisingly nervy mineral and floral notes carry through a long, sappy, penetrating finish. I'd serve this powerful wine with a preparation of chicken and mushrooms or truffles."
