"It is an amazing achievement. Even better is the 2008 Ermitage l’Ermite (449 cases) . . . . it reveals a powdered rock character in its ink, graphite, earth, blueberry and black currant-scented bouquet. Displaying medium to full body as well as great purity, it is another amazing accomplishment from Michel Chapoutier. Interestingly, in 2008, Chapoutier decided to cut back on the new oak for all of his top cuvees (utilizing 25% versus the normal 100%)." Wine Advocate #193, Feb 2011
Notes: 4.5cm.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $850
