2018 Laurent Fayolle Hermitage Les Dionnieres Blanc

The nicely balanced, medium-bodied, classic 2018 Hermitage Les Dionnières Blanc has plenty of character as well as minerality to go with complex green herbs, chamomile, orchard fruits, and a touch of mint in its aromas and flavors. With good acidity and concentration, I’d give bottles another year to see if it gains a touch of mid-palate depth.

Burning embers, toasted spice, graphite, and terrific currant-like fruits emerge from the 2017 Hermitage Les Dionnières, which is medium to full-bodied and nicely balanced, with silky tannins and a beautiful finish. It has an approachable, seamless style, yet still has enough tannins to warrant just short-term cellaring. It's a seamless, character-filled Hermitage with loads to love.
