"Lastly, the flagship 2018 Hermitage Les Dionnières comes from a lieu-dit on the eastern side of the appellation. It reveals a deeper ruby/purple color as well as old school notes of red and black fruits, cedary herbs, crushed rock, and pepper. Not destemmed and brought up in neutral barrels, this beauty is medium to full-bodied and has a concentrated mid-palate, building tannins, and a clean, focused, dry finish. This old school, tannic Hermitage is going to benefit from 5-7 years of bottle age and cruise for two decades or more in cold cellars. It's beautifully done."
