E. Guigal Ex Voto Ermitage Blanc Marsanne Roussanne 2009

$375

Like the 2010, the 2009 Hermitage Ex Voto Blanc is an utterly perfect wine, and I finished my note during the tasting with “the best white wine I’ve ever tasted?”. More unctuous, thick and flamboyant than the more reserved and mineral-laced 2010, it has soaring aromatics of caramelized peach, brioche, white flowers and orange marmalade. These flow to a full-bodied, huge white that packs incredible richness and depth, yet still glides across the palate with no weight or heaviness. This is truly heavenly juice that I wish every reader could taste! Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Uncorked a beauty received from my WNH bud Shawn Rose @Shawn R . Thank you for sharing this stunning beauty with me. Just a hint of oak, superb Tropical fruit well balanced and a lengthy 60+ second finish with a touch of nut. What a great way to get the day started!! Thank you Shawn & Jennifer! Definitely Badass in a Glass! Merry Christmas!

This run of about 13 PHENOMENAL wines I'm posting are from the SQN wine dinner/WNH interview I did at @Shawn R 's house last night. I was like a kid in a candy store on Christmas. What an absolutely EPIC night! Love ya brother! If Shawn wasn't flexing his muscles yet, this is where he really started letting it fly. No big deal here, just a RParker 100 pt wine that was superb. This was my second ermitage Blanc ever and I cry at the fact that I haven't found out about them sooner. The waxy character on this was a great compliment to the balanced fruit and earthy notes. Granny Smith apple and non-toasted bread on the palate, Burt's Beeswax aroma. So delicious.

Opened 3 hours and drank over the next three - just got better and better and better - once it all integrates it's going to be ridiculous.
