Caroline Frey – managing director of Frey Family Wineries: Chateau La Lagune (where she's been winemaker for more than a decade; skyrocketing results ensuing), Jaboulet Aine & its wildly famous Hermitage La Chapelle and Thalabert (acquired in 2006), along with a substantial stake in Billecart Salmon, has vowed to maintain and further elevate Thalabert among the great wines of the northern Rhone. The 2017 releases are superb.


Brought up just like the Crozes Hermitage Blanc, the 2017 Hermitage Chevalier De Sterimberg 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.
