Paul Jaboulet Aîné Hermitage Le Chevalier de Sterimberg 2014
|Region||France, Rhone, Hermitage|

Another terrific white that will give a top white Burgundy a run for its money is the 2014 Hermitage Chevalier de Sterimberg. It's a blend of 70% Marsanne and 30% Roussanne that was aged in a combination of oak casks and concrete eggs, with plenty of lees stirring. Made in a fresh, laser-focused, tight style, its terrific perfume of buttered citrus, honeysuckle, tangerine and flower oil is followed by a medium to full-bodied, crisp, elegant Hermitage that will evolve for 15-20 years.
