"Brilliant and intense yellow with green hues, limpid and bright. Complex nose with aromas of white fruit and pears. Mineral notes dominate the lightly honeyed and 'confit' aspects that will enrich the range of aromas as the wine develops. Elegant in the mouth with a surprising aromatic length. The vivacity of the wine balances well with an exceptional full-bodiedness, giving this great wine its tremendous richness and fabulous ageing potential." —winemaker
"The 2010 Hermitage La Chapelle Blanc is 100% Marsanne from the vineyard known as Maison Blanche situated at the top of the Hermitage appellation, above the famed lieu-dit for white Hermitage, Les Rocoules. This cuvee is very limited in availability so I’ll keep my notes brief. Aromas of white currants, pepper, quince and apricot marmalade are present in this full-bodied, gorgeously rich, pure, stunning white. Completely locked down at present, it should be forgotten for 8-10 years and drunk over the following two decades. It will unquestionably be a very long-lived white wine." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

"Bright gold. Orange oil and pear on the pungent, mineral-dominated nose. Rich, dense and focused, with a complex array of palate-staining orchard and pit fruit flavors. Broad and smooth but light on its feet thanks to a spine of zesty minerality. Very smooth and gently sweet on the endless finish, which leaves notes of honey and bitter pear skin behind." —Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
