Wine Advocate-Parker : Since the 2016 hasn't been bottled yet, I was offered a second look at the in-bottle 2015 Ermitage Ex Voto Blanc, which I rated 94+? last year. This year, it's a bit more open, showing toasty-nutty notes of almonds and hazelnuts layered over intense melon and pear fruit. This full-bodied powerhouse shows great texture, spice and length. Although drinkable now, I've no doubt it will be singing with the cheese course in 15 years.
