Jaboulet's 2017 Hermitage Blanc Le Chevalier de Sterimberg is approximately two-thirds Marsanne and one-third Roussanne. Subtle notes of crushed stone and pencil shavings frame honey, pineapple and baking spices, all wrapped around a tensile core of tangerine and lime. In a year when no La Chapelle Blanc is being made, this is the top white Hermitage from Jaboulet, and it's a beauty, with a silky texture and a long, mouthwatering finish. Joe Czerwinski - The Wine Advocate

Brought up just like the Crozes Hermitage Blanc, the 2017 Hermitage Chevalier De Steimberg Blanc is a slightly more Marsanne-dominated effort that offers more minerality and well as reserved notes of spice citrus, crushed rocks, and hints of tangerine. Ultra-pure, seamless, and silky on the palate, it has a beautiful mid-palate as well as a great finish. Purity, freshness, and focus are the buzzwords here. Jeb Dunnuck

Limpid yellow-gold. Mineral-accented aromas of dried pear, lemon pith, succulent herbs and honey are given spicy lift by a gingery nuance. Chewy and sharply focused on the palate, offering densely packed orchard and pit fruit flavors and hints of chamomile and anise. The mineral note comes back strong on an impressively long, penetrating finish that shows fine definition and solid thrust. 

A composed and refined Hermitage with fresh, pear and apple aromas, as well as pastry-like, savory complexity. Plenty of interest here. The palate has a bright, tangy core of acidity and a nice, fine presence of cool apples, pears and white melon. Light, pastry notes to close. From organically grown grapes. Barrel sample. - James Suckling
