2019 Chave Hermitage Blanc

Posted by Ian McFadden

Chave's Hermitage is one of the great wines of the world. 

Over the years, Chave's Blanc has steadily assumed a place as one of my favorite white wines on the planet.

There's no other dry white wine in the world that ages quite like Chave's Hermitage Blanc.

It's a stand-alone wine. Its greatness, however, is complicated. It absolutely dominates the palate with indescribable layers, spellbinding nobility and a luxurious, dizzying, kaleidoscopic, mysterious depth. 

Like Chave's Hermitage Rouge, the Blanc boasts Chave's brilliant blending skills. What results is an insane flavor spectrum of nectarine, peach, citrus oils, quince, marzipan, honey and flowers, balanced by great purity, elegance, minerality and freshness. It's head-spinning. 

The 2019 Hermitage Blanc is an epic wine. It is dense and powerful, flaunting all the layers and nuance the wine can possess. However, the vintage's richness is only part of the story. It's also a wine with a mineral backbone and serious energy. It's the combination of presence, verve and stony underpinnings that make the wine so thrilling.

For me, Chave's Blanc demands a place in every collector's cellar. It's an incredible wine and a distance runner. Happy to offer.
