Perfumed aromas of apple, pear, white flowers and herbs. Concentrated, rich and still quite primary; really dense with material. Flavors of apple, hay and nut skin. Tastes like a barrel sample. Finishes with a dusty, minerally quality and excellent persistence.

The 1998 Ermitage Cuvee de l'Oree's explosive bouquet offers a liquid minerality, honeyed tropical fruits, peaches, and acacia flowers. Amazingly, the 100% new oak treatment has been totally absorbed. The wine is extremely full-bodied, fresh, and pure, with an immense palate presence as well as finish. Drink it over the next 4-5 years, or forget about it for a decade.

Dumb stage, smells like a sherry. Wait 10 years, and see if it comes round.

Has really started to come around. Butterscotch and acacia flowers with a hint of minerality on the long finish.
