2017 Ferraton Père et Fils "Les Dionnières" Ermitage

SKU #1460793 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

 The 2017 Hermitage Les Dionnières is more deep, structured, and serious, with killer notes of crème de cassis, graphite, ground pepper, and inky notes. Rich, full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, and with both tannins and acidity to burn...  (12/2019)

96 points Decanter

 From south-facing vines on clay-limestone soils, the fruit was fermented in concrete and will be aged for up to 18 months in oak, around 25% new. The oak is robust but can't entrap the dynamic fruit. There's a touch of rich plum compote to the ripe blackberry on the very full-bodied and thick palate. It's very intense - the extraction has been pushed as far as it can comfortably go - but it has bags of energy, freshness and saline drive keeping things drinkable onto an exceptionally long finish. One of the biggest 2017 Hermitage reds. Don't drink it young. (MW)  (10/2018)

95 points Wine Spectator

 Fleshy and enticing in feel, featuring warm raspberry, blackberry and plum puree notes stitched together with ganache, alder and tobacco threads. A loamy tug checks in at the very end, giving this latent length and a solid bass line. (JM)  (12/2019)

94-95 points Vinous

 Brilliant purple. Highly expressive red/blue fruit scents are complemented by suave floral pastille, baking spice and smoky mineral flourishes. Sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering concentrated black raspberry, boysenberry and spicecake flavors that deepen steadily on the back half. Shows outstanding clarity and spicy cut on the tenacious, wonderfully persistent finish, which features fine-grained tannins and resonating florality. (aged in oak barrels, 25% of them new, for 18 months) (JR)  (7/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2017 Ermitage Les Dionnières reveals scents of maple syrup, mocha and ripe cherries. It's full-bodied and creamy-supple but dense and concentrated, with a long finish that hints at bitterness and brine—just enough to provide a welcome balance to the lush fruit. (JC)  (12/2019)
