Winemaker Notes

Brilliant golden yellow. Intense aromas and very minerally, with notes of celery overtones and a slight, well-integrated hint of wood. Ample and well-rounded body, with fine exotic freshness and roasted almond notes.

Critical Acclaim

RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The medium-gold colored 2006 Ermitage le Meal Blanc is one of the deeper-colored wines in the lineup. It offers a full-bodied, low acid and unctuously textured profile to go with notes of browned butter, celery seed, caramelized golden fruits and almond paste. Slightly reserved and reticent, yet still a hedonistic bomb, with sensational concentration and mid-palate density, give it a few more years and enjoy bottles through 2036.
WS 97
Wine Spectator
Powerful—and slightly bass heavy for now—with apricot, peach and persimmon notes leading the way, followed by alluring piecrust, salted butter, yellow apple and mineral notes that stretch out the finish. Needs a little time to come together fully, but then should cruise in the cellar.

M. Chapoutier Michel Chapoutier at Ermitage Winery Image
No name is more closely associated with the greatness of the Rhone valley than Chapoutier.

The history of the Chapoutier family stretches back to the early nineteenth century when current owner Michel Chapoutier's great-, great-, great-grandfather Marius purchased an estate and some vineyards in the now famous village of Tain l'Hermitage in the Northern Rhône Valley. Marius Chapoutier made history in the region when he became the first grape grower there to vinify his own fruit. Marius had tasted wines other winemakers produced using his fruit and he realized that something was lost in translation, so to speak. He knew that he owned some of the best growing sites in the appellation and he believed — rightly — that the grapes grown in his vineyards could produce long-lived world-class wines. In a move unusual at the time, he decided that he should make the wine himself. Not only did the quality of the wines increase greatly, but this move provided the capital to expand the Chapoutiers’ already legendary estate.

A visionary and pioneer in biodynamic winemaking, his restless energy and unconditional commitment to quality have produced tremendous success, with the most 90+ point ratings of all Rhône producers and 16 "100 point" rated wines.
