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.
