This 2011 Chevalier de Sterimberg displays a straw-coloured yellow hue with green glints. It gives off pear and grilled almond aromas, mixed with floral notes. The palate is fresh and clear. It has a dense and suave mouth-feel on a note of lemon marmalade, and closes on a bold and greatly refreshing finish. This white Hermitage is composed of 65% Marsanne and 35% Roussanne, which grow on calcareous-clay and clayey-stony soils. Paul Jaboulet Aîné Chevalier de Sterimberg cuvee gets its name from the real chevalier (knight) Gaspard de Sterimberg who built the Saint-Christophe chapel that still dominates the plots on the hills of the domain.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Starting off the 2011 whites, all of which were in bottle, the 2011 Hermitage Chevalier de Sterimberg (70% Marsanne and 30% Roussanne) offers up gorgeous honeyed fruits, creme, lemon, buttered citrus and distinct minerality in a medium to full-bodied, fresh, lively and pure package. Gaining richness and depth with air, with integrated acidity and additional nuttiness on the blockbuster finish, it's a thrilling effort that will evolve for 15-20 years.
