When it comes to the Northern Rhone, Jean-Louis Chave is king. His highly sought after Hermitage Blanc is always Marsanne dominant, with Roussanne rounding out 15-20% of the assemblage. The 2007 vintage is viscous and ripe, with brighter acidity than the prior vintage. Flavors of ripe peach and quince dominate, with a strong backbone of minerality and acid. Waxy yet zesty; enjoy now or continue to lay down.
