2015 Hermitage Blanc, Chevalier de Sterimberg, Domaine Jaboulet (6 x Bottle)

France Rhone North Rhone

(raised in oak barrels and concrete eggs for 10 months) Limpid yellow. Vibrant, mineral-accented aromas of pear skin and Meyer lemon, joined by hints of smoky lees, iodine and anise that emerge with air. Sappy, concentrated and seamless on the palate, offering palate-staining citrus and orchard fruit and toasted brioche flavors sharpened by a chalky mineral nuance. Finishes taut, minerally and impressively long; echoes of citrus pith and smoky minerals add cut and focus.

The 2015 Hermitage Blanc Le Chevalier de Sterimberg is another medium-bodied, pure, energetic white that offers fabulous minerality, crisp white peach and a touch of hazelnut on the finish. I’d love to see more depth and richness here, but it’s impeccably balanced and there’s no denying this beauty has class. Drink it anytime over the coming decade or more.
