The 2016 Ermitage de l'Oree from Les Murets' clay soils combines hints of honey and toast with tangerine zest and melon. It's 100% Marsanne, yet shows exuberant, nearly tropical flavors and absolutely no bitterness. It's full-bodied, completely mouth coating and rich, yet it finishes with zesty vitality and sherbet-like cleanliness. It should drink well for at least two decades. - Joe Czerwinski

The 2016 Ermitage De L’Orée is also beautiful in the vintage and has a huge nose of buttered citrus, white flowers, orange blossom, and liquid rocks. Rich, full-bodied, beautifully pure and elegant, it has a seamless feel...   The 2016 Ermitage De L’Orée is also beautiful in the vintage and has a huge nose of buttered citrus, white flowers, orange blossom, and liquid rocks. Rich, full-bodied, beautifully pure and elegant, it has a seamless feel on the palate, terrific acidity, and a great finish. Coming all from the Les Murets lieu-dit and brought up in 15% new demi-muids, give this beauty 2-3 years of bottle age and it will shine for 2-3 decades.

Densely fruited, featuring yellow apple, peach, pear and mirabelle plum flavors, but lithe and pure as well, with light floral, quinine and salted butter notes rippling underneath. The very long finish shows latent energy...   Densely fruited, featuring yellow apple, peach, pear and mirabelle plum flavors, but lithe and pure as well, with light floral, quinine and salted butter notes rippling underneath. The very long finish shows latent energy and a lingering chamomile echo. Best from 2022 through 2040. — J.M.

Brilliant gold. Heady lemon curd, pear nectar, iodine and toasted brioche on the deeply perfumed, mineral-accented nose.

Heady lemon curd, pear nectar, iodine and toasted brioche on the deeply perfumed, mineral-accented nose. Juicy and expansive on the palate, offering densely packed citrus and orchard fruit and sweet butter flavors that show outstanding clarity and minerally thrust. Delivers superb energy and real power on the clinging finish, which features a sexy floral quality and a touch of smoky minerality. This wine's balancing act of power and finesse is extremely impressive. -- Josh Raynolds

(94-95 points) Very impressive concentration, power, freshness and refinement. Aromas are in the dried-herb, lemon-pith and glazed-pear zone. The palate has intensity and depth with smooth, lemon-infused pears and white...   (94-95 points) Very impressive concentration, power, freshness and refinement. Aromas are in the dried-herb, lemon-pith and glazed-pear zone. The palate has intensity and depth with smooth, lemon-infused pears and white peaches. Gently savory finish. From organically grown grapes. Barrel sample.
