The flavors show pinpoint focus yet are nicely layered with baked apple lime and toasty spice flavors that linger. Drink now through 2013.`
91 Points - Wine Spectator "Sleek and complex, with lovely aromas of green apple, loam and warm cinnamon rolls. The flavors show pinpoint focus, yet are nicely layered, with baked apple, lime and toasty spice flavors that linger. Drink now through 2013. 8,332 cases made." 93 Points - Wine & Spirits "This wine combines remarkable freshness with elegant richness, so that even after it's been open for several days, the flavors are still evolving, the fruit still brisk as an autumn breeze. It needs that time for the blunt chalkiness of the structure to mellow, for the cool apple and pear flavors to develop and lengthen. Built to age, this is an exceptional vintage of L'Ermitage." 91 Points - Wine Enthusiast "Compared to Roederer’s current nonvintage bubblies, this one’s tight and not as likeable. It has an almost rustic scoury feeling. But it’s very rich in cherries, raspberries, white peaches and yeasty, leesy influences, and probably needs time in the bottle. Try after 2010."
