Wine Spectator | Rating: 95A rich style, with a lightly buttered edge leading the way, though there's ample drive to the core of white peach, melon and pear flavors. A light honeysuckle edge frames the finish, presenting a toasted macadamia nut echo. Scrumptious. Drink now through 2025. 24 cases imported.Drink Dates: 2017-2025Author: James Molesworth
Rating: 98The thickest, most unctuous, full-bodied and sexy white of the vintage is the 2014 Ermitage de l'Oree. Coming all from the sedimentary soils of the Les Murets and aged mostly in demi-muids (only 15% new), it offers a sensational perfume of caramelized peaches, campfire, honeysuckle and white flowers that literally come soaring from the glass. Possessing uncommon density, a stacked mid-palate, loads of sweet fruit and a blockbuster finish, this hedonistic effort can be drunk with incredibly pleasure today, or cellared for a decade or more. It will have three or more decades of overall longevity.Author: Robert Parker
