While most white Ermitages are made from a combination of Marsanne and Roussanne, this one is made from 100% Roussanne grapes, which lend a rich, soft elegance to this very unique wine. This vintage (2007) is ready to drink now!

  • A delightfully complex and expressive nose overflows with honey, vanilla, and grassy scents, as well as gardenia, toast, hazelnuts, caramel, the slightly oxidized scent of a fino sherry, and something suggestive of fine Cognac, making this wine a pleasure just to wave under the nose—but don’t stop there; it’s equally tasty, with opulent, ripe, honeyed flavors that beg to be paired with nutty, earthy foods. Simply delicious. Drinkable now, but likely to continue to evolve.

    Food pairing: Spiced, baked squash; grilled fish with bamboo shoots, shiitake, or wild mushrooms; mushroom quiche; rabbit with wild mushrooms

  • The nose has the slightly oxidized scent of a fino sherry along with honey and hazelnut aromas but also an intense floral perfume. The palate offers honey, chalky minerality, white flowers, and hazelnut flavors. Rich and hearty but slightly rustic at the same time. Drinking well now but likely to continue to develop through 2019–2021.

    Food pairing: Serve with heavier white meats like pork or breast of turkey

The Creator of This Wine

Domaine Philippe & Vincent Jaboulet

Domaine Philippe & Vincent Jaboulet

After 30 years overseeing the famous Paul Jaboulet Aîné vineyards, Philippe Jaboulet decided it was time for a change. Taking 37 acres (15 hectares) of the old family business, he teamed up with his son Vincent to combine it with 37 acres of new land -- creating the new Domaine Philippe & Vincent Jaboulet.
