Winemaker Notes

Fine tiny bubbles and a long lasting mousse are the usual footprints of the L’Ermitage cuvée. Aromas of hazelnut and roasted pecans opening to some clove spiciness. Vibrant acidity, with notes of Asian pear, baked green apple. Creamy mid palate and clean acid with a dry finish.

Critical Acclaim

James Suckling
This is a powerful and dense sparkling wine that is first and foremost a classic-quality wine. And then you think about the bubbles. Full-bodied with lots of brioche, pie crust and bread dough. Great finish. Five years on the lees. 52% chardonnay and 48% pinot noir. Drink now

Wine Enthusiast
This grand, special-occasion wine is wonderfully complex and layered, but also powerful in the way its toasted walnut, Bosc pear and fresh bread flavors start out strong in the aroma and keep pumping on the palate and through a lingering finish. Nice and dry, tangy but mouth filling, it’s a sophisticated indulgence. Best now to 2028.
Wine Spectator
Classically styled and expressively vibrant, this bubbly opens to flavors of baked apple, roasted hazelnut, clove, nutmeg and other spices. The finish fans out, building a lingering richness. Drink now.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The 2015 L’Ermitage Brut is scented of baked apples, pastry and iodine. The palate offers ripe fruit and savory autolytic character, with softened acidity, creamy mousse and a citrusy finish.
