Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
From one of the greatest years in Hermitage, Jean Louis Chave's 2009 Hermitage Blanc is quite possibly the greatest white ever from this estate (the 2013 will certainly be in the same league, but in a different style) and tops out on my scale. An utterly profound wine in every way, it offers to-die-for notes of liquid rock, licorice, buttered citrus, honey and quince. This gives way to a voluptuous, full-bodied, decadent and heavenly Hermitage Blanc that has massive richness and mid-palate depth while always staying fresh, pure and focused. This is insanely good white that will have half a century of longevity. Bravo!

 A stunning display of richness and precision, with almost languid creamed Cavaillon melon, peach and persimmon fruit framed by toasted macadamia nut and brioche hints. This is kept lively by salted butter, chamomile and orange blossom flavors through the very long finish, where a quinine note echoes.

Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider
Showing much better than when last tasted a few years ago. The wine is intense, powerful, concentrated, vibrant and fresh, with load of sweet, slightly honeyed lemon, grapefruit, flowers and stone notes. Luscious in texture, the wine leaves a long impression of fruit and freshness.

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

The Jean Louis Chave estate is the jewel of a centuries-old family. Jean Louis Chave is the sixth generation of winemakers from this estate. The estate is renowned for its very high quality Hermitage wines.

Located in the north of the Rhône region, the estate includes a 10 hectare vineyard for the production of its red wines; including a plot of very old Les Roucoules vines, another 80-year-old Les Bessards, relatively young vines at Ermite, extremely old at Péléat and Beaumes, and 50-year-old vines at Méal. Each of these vineyards produces a wine with slightly different aroma, texture and flavor palettes, but the "sum of the parts" is far more interesting than each cuvée taken individually.

The red Hermitage of the Chave estate becomes dazzling after several years of aging. Full and concentrated, magnificently complex and racy, it develops a wide range of aromas ranging from blackcurrant to smoke, including notes of prune and spices. The white, from the Jean Louis Chave estate, develops creamy and honeyed aromas of hazelnut, peach and apricot, of a rare smoothness, has an aging potential of several decades. These Hermitages impose themselves, by their freshness, their balance, their delicacy, and their length, clearly above all the others.
