  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Rousanne 35% Marsanne 65% Paul Jaboulet Ainé owns 5 hectares of white Hermitage spread over different climates: Rocoule, Maison Blanche and La Croix, the soils are composed of fluvial alluvium and clay. Cleaned after pressing, the wine is then vinified and aged in new oak casks during 4 to 6 months.

Clear, straw gold color with green hints. Rich and complex, its aromas of apricot, Viennese pastries and violets blend into a remarkably powerful, lightly oaked bouquet. Lively and fresh at first, developing an elegant sensation of fullness, upheld by an agreeably light structure.

Critical Acclaim

"Captivating, with star fruit, anise, Jonagold apple, chamomile and heather honey aromas and flavors that rush along a creamy but detailed and focused frame. The long, finely tuned finish has fine buried minerality. Marsanne and Roussanne. Drink now through 2014. 941 cases made."
93 Points

"Light gold. Intensely floral bouquet of honeysuckle, magnolia, papaya, dried peach, smoked meat and minerals. Round and fleshy on entry but firmer-edged in the middle, showing vivid pit and exotic fruit character and a stony undercurrent. Smoothly blends richness and sappy energy, finishing with excellent lift and cut. A sweet note of yellow plum lingers seductively."
91 Points

"A blend of 65% marsanne and 35% rousanne grown at the top of the Hermitage hill, this has the richness of marzipan. It's very ripe, redolent of honey and pineapple, a generous companion for scallops in brown butter."
91 Points

"Another big wine is the rich 2007 Hermitage Chevalier de Sterimberg blanc, which offers a honeyed richness, tropical fruit, marmalade, quince, and white currant characteristics. Medium to full-bodied and long, it should evolve for 10-15 years. "
