External Reviews for Chapoutier Ermitage Cuvee de l'Oree
A ripe, full-bodied style, with fig, creamed pear, McIntosh apple and melon flavors laced with sweetened butter and guided by a macadamia nut edge on the finish. Youthfully raw and a bit unbridled right now, but this should settle into itself with time. Best from 2015 through 2027.
There are 477 cases of the light gold-colored 2009 Ermitage Cuvee de lrsquo;Oree, which I would be happy to insert in a blind tasting against the worldrsquo;s greatest dry white wines, including Montrachet. The famous gout de petrol is there along with hints of citrus oil, wet steel, crushed rocks, quince, white currants, anise and honeysuckle. Very full, with off-the-charts intensity, this wine was fashioned from yields of 13 hectoliters per hectare (which is financial suicide) from 90 to 100-year old Marsanne vines. The result is an amazingly concentrated white wine that should drink well for 50+ years.
