Wine Advocate 99 points - Even better and always one of the top whites in any given vintage, the 2011 Ermitage Cuvee de lOree (first produced in 1991) comes from 80+-year-old Marsanne vines planted in the Les Murets lieu-dit. Gorgeously full-bodied and impeccably put together on the palate, with awesome texture and richness thats framed by vibrant acidity, it boasts off the hook aromas and flavors of flower oil, buttered citrus, dried pineapple and powdered rock. It will be even better in another year, and age pretty much forever. As Ive said before though, there is no harm in drinking these beauties in their youth.  (Dec 2013)

Wine Spectator 96 points - The Jonagold apple, pear, persimmon and lemon curd notes glide along, carried by hints of brioche and macadamia nut before giving way to a lightly toasted almond edge on the finish. Still shows a hint of raw youth, so let this settle in the cellar. Best from 2016 through 2024. From France.óJ.M. (Jan 29 2014)
