Of the three sélection parcellaire whites, the 2015 Ermitage de l’Orée is the most fresh and lively, with full-bodied richness and depth in its pineapple, mint, tropical fruits, toasted bread, brioche and liquid rock-styled aromas and flavors. It has good acidity, a stacked mid-palate and one seriously long finish. Not enough can be said about the quality that consistently comes from this estate. From the top to the bottom of the range, you can’t go wrong. (JD)
Tight bouquet, deep mass of jumbled fruits. Glorious and fat in a complex, provocative wine. In a different league. Drinking Window 2018-2038. (JLL)
Vivid yellow-gold. Powerful, mineral-accented orange, melon, white peach, toasted brioche and iodine scents show impressive focus and vivacity. Displays a compelling blend of depth and energy, offering concentrated, mineral-tinged citrus and pit fruit, honey and candied fig flavors complemented by a subtle anise quality. Finishes with outstanding focus and lift, leaving behind suave floral and mineral notes. (JR)
Topping the production pyramid here at the Ermitage bottlings, starting with the 2015 Ermitage White de l'Orée which is honeyed and long, with alluring wet straw, heather, pear and yellow apple notes streaming through, carried by a spine of wet stone that echoes authoritatively.
