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. - Robert Parker

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. –JM

(NM90-92 points) This has a coquettish nose of pear skin, apricot, a touch of peach and lemon zest. Good definition. The palate has CO2 on the entry, good acidity, a nutty mid-palate, crushed stones leading towards the bitter finish. Good nervosite and tension but missing some length at the moment.

Yellow-gold. Intensely perfumed aromas of poached pear, tropical fruits, honey and baking spices, with exotic iodine and licorice notes that expand with air.

Intensely perfumed aromas of poached pear, tropical fruits, honey and baking spices, with exotic iodine and licorice notes that expand with air. Lush and creamy in texture, with deep mango and pear nectar flavors and a refreshing jolt of zesty citrus fruits adding lift. The iodine note repeats on a long, sappy, penetrating finish. - Josh Raynolds
