Terrific the 1999 Ermitage Cuvee de l'Oree is floral with lots of elegance but not much weight or concentration. To be fair it had just fermented dry before I arrived so it needs some time on its lees and further barrel... Terrific the 1999 Ermitage Cuvee de l'Oree is floral with lots of elegance but not much weight or concentration. To be fair it had just fermented dry before I arrived so it needs some time on its lees and further barrel aging to fill out. It should be a massive statuesque white Hermitage the likes of which do not exist in any other cellar. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2035.

More wonderful quality from Hermitage's white vineyards. A subtle but rich and flavorful white that's not too alcoholic just perfectly balanced with ripe fruit and mineral notes combining nicely on the lingering finish...
