Wine SpectatorA touch extreme, as this is very toasty in style, with lots of butter, grilled hazelnut and peach cobbler aromas and flavors. Really powerful, with a broad and muscular palate. Yet there's impressive drive and length, with solid cut thanks to invigorating bitter almond and orange peel notes buried deep. Best after 2016. 625 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe medium gold-colored 2006 Hermitage Ex-Voto Blanc (90% Marsanne and 10% Roussanne) exhibits pear and peach marmalade, honeysuckle and exotic Asian spice notes. It is a nearly over-the-top, intense, full-bodied white with an extravagant fruit character that conceals considerable acidity and structure. It will offer a mouthful of viscous, dry white wine over the next 10-15+ years.
