Slightly better is the 600-case cuvee of 2008 Ermitage Cuvee de l’Oree. This brilliant white Hermitage from the top of the granite dome of this appellation offers notes of roasted hazelnuts, nectarine oil, citrus, quince and crushed rocks. Astonishingly full-bodied and rich, particularly in view of the vintage conditions, it is exceeded in quality ever so slightly by the two white Hermitages that follow.
Racy and invigorating in feel, with dried chamomile flower and lime zest notes leading the way, backed by vibrant anise, fennel, white peach, salted butter and quinine notes. Picks up a touch of golden raisin on the superlong finish. Drink now through 2018. 40 cases imported.
Sedimentary soils and the result is a little too woody at present Michel C admits. Quaternary period soils. Much greener, clearer look. Fresher, yet richer taste - not the funkiness of the Granits. Bony yet rich with great structure. Jancis Robinson
Awesome nose of caramel, lemon, and white flowers, with a hint of melted tar. Ripe peach and citrus fruit on the palate, with notes of baking spices and beeswax. Medium+ acidity; long finish.~vivino.com
