94 points "Perhaps the best cuvee he has ever made of Ermitage Chante Alouette is the 2004, a fabulous vintage for the whites of the northern Rhone. This wine competes attractively with the single vineyard whites. The wine has wonderful notes of honeysuckle, licorice, quince, and white currants in an almost thick, juicy style yet buttressed by considerable acidity. It is a gorgeous wine with terrific intensity and richness. "
