90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2004

($40) Aromas of orange blossom, almond, marzipan and dried flowers. Enticing flavors of orange blossom and nuts, with very ripe notes of apricot and pineapple. Rounded out nicely with aeration, showing a more tropical character. Finishes tactile, firm and long.

This big, broad effort is more accessible than the 1999 (due to lower acidity and riper fruit), but should also be long-lived. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2016."- Robert Parker, Jr.

Marsanne

Marsanne, the most widely planted white grape of the northern Rhone Valley, has a long history-- not in single varietal bottlings, but rather as a blending grape. In Hermitage, Marsanne is blended with Roussane to produce the white wine of the appellation; in our opinion, white Hermitage is one of the most overlooked great wines of the world. Incidentally, along with Roussane, up to...
