2012 Domaine du Colombier Blanc  (Hermitage) 92

Flowers, honey, citrus peel, white peach, spice and vanilla create the nose for the full-bodied, luscious, richly textured wine made from 100% Marsanne. 92 Points

2012 Domaine du Colombier  (Hermitage) 93

Concentrated, forward, full bodied and loaded up with ripe black cherries, smoke, espresso, underbrush and pepper, if you like your Hermitage on the young, fresh crunchy side, you can pop a cork now. Else, give it at least another 5 years or more, and this will be even better. 93 Points

2011 Domaine du Colombier Blanc  (Hermitage) 90

Rich and with that oily texture that comes easily with 100% Marsanne, here you also find bright notes of buttery, yellow fruit and honeysuckle, vanilla and floral characteristics. 90 Points

2010 Domaine du Colombier  (Hermitage) 94

Young, powerful, intense, quite tannic, full bodied, concentrated and not ready for prime time drinking for at least a decade, or longer. Still, it's hard to miss the earthy, dark, red, fruit, crushed rock, olive, forest leaf, and peppery essence that comes out with effort. 94 Points

2009 Domaine du Colombier  (Hermitage) 92

Not a wine I see often. Poured blind by a good friend, the wine is dark in color, with concentration, intensity, tannin and loads of fresh, sweet, juicy blackberries and thyme. Rich, soft, vibrant and young, this will be smoking by its 10th birthday. 92 Points
