« …the 2018 Hermitage Laurus Blanc is a rich, textured, beautifully balanced, and straight-up classy Hermitage Blanc. Notes of white currants, quince, honeysuckle, and white flowers give way to a medium to full-bodied, silky, layered white that’s going to shine on the dinner table… » Jeb Dunnuck, November 2020

Detailed information


2018 was atypical in many ways. This vintage required a constant presence from the vineyards to the cellar. After a mild Winter, the wet and rainy Spring gave way to a beautiful Summer, favoring a perfect growth of the grapes. September then ushered in an Indian Summer that proved to be more than ideal for harvests with cool nights and warm & sunny days. The grapes were harvested for a total of 8 weeks at optimal maturity and under ideal climatic conditons. The result is an elegant vintage with a particularly aromatic profile and a superbe balance.
