Winemaker's Notes

The Maison Nicolas Perrin Hermitage Blanc, with its golden color, is already showing great depth and fatness. The nose is complex with aromas of candied fruit and spices. The mouth is full and has a great length.

Critical Acclaim

"A lush, languid style, with creamed pear, sweetened butter and yellow apple fruit flavors all gliding through the flattering finish, where green almond and chamomile notes help stretch this out even more. Delicious. Drink now through 2016."
92 Points

"Light, bright gold. Heady aromas of lemon curd, poached pear, peach and beeswax, with subtle vanilla and smoke nuance building with air. Deeply concentrated but lively, offering palate-staining pit and orchard fruit flavors underscored by smoky minerals. A floral quality emerges with air and carries through a long, sappy and penetrating finish. This powerful, energetic wine should be a long-distance runner."
92 Points

"The outstanding 2010 Hermitage Blanc (a barrel-aged blend of 70% Marsanne and 30% Roussanne) exhibits copious notes of marzipan, creme brulee, honeysuckle, rose water and fresh fruit along with good minerality as well as acidity. Drink this big white wine over the next 7-10 years. "
