Tasting Notes

Nearly perfect, the beautiful 2006 Ermitage Cuvee de l’Oree offers up sensational aromas of quince, honeyed hazelnuts, white currants, flowers, and a liqueur of crushed rocks. Incredible glycerin as well as zesty acids give this enormously-endowed, thick, massive wine surprising lift and laser-like focus. It should drink well for half a century!

Score: 99

Very rich, with nearly oily texture and ripe, slightly smoky notes of mango, creamed peach, guava and melon. Long and creamy through the finish, with a buried stony minerality that helps stretch it out. There's more power now, so let this assimilate fully in the cellar.

Score: 97
