Wine Enthusiast, 95 Points- A panoply of subtle aromas and delicate flavors wrapped in a silky, slightly crisp texture give this medium-bodied wine a great sense of elegance. Fresh ginger, biscuits, toasted almonds and mild cherry nuances fill the palate. Best through 2025.
Tasting Notes- Fine bubbles and creamy finish are the usual footprints of the L’Ermitage wine. Aromatics of hazelnut, brioche and flint create a mysterious and layered first contact. Mouthfeel is inviting quince jelly aromas and bright acidity with layered texture. Dosage is balanced with the acid and structure brought by the reserve wines from cask.
