    (Chapoutier Ermitage De L'Orée) This is very different in style to the much younger white wines tasted earlier. Here we have more evolved notes on the nose, nuances of honey and gingerbread, and honey-toffee pineapple, all jostling to express the richness of the wine. Despite this, there is also a firm minerally-stony theme to it, giving the wine a fresh and bright frame. On the palate, a very fine and substantial wine, cool and quite grippy, with a huge structure tightening down on the wine at the end. Overall, with its huge depth and evolved complexity, this is a very seductive, gorgeous and supple composition. I do feel, however, that this grandeur will be eclipsed by the 2007s given time.
