Vintages 2016

BETTANE+DESSEAUVE

Score : 16.5 /20

Rond et gourmand, le tannin n’est pas aussi frais et enrobé qu’en 2015, on le boira plus jeune, la fraîcheur revient bien en finale. Dans ce millésime, la cuvée ex-voto n’a pas été produite. 

 

JEB DUNNUCK

Score : (91-93)

The 2016 Hermitage shows the more medium to full-bodied style of the vintage and has perfumed, even pretty notes of black and blue fruits, violets, and that classic Hermitage minerality. It’s rounded and supple on the palate yet has plenty of underlying tannins. It’s not going to match the 2015 but is in the same overall ballpark as the 2014.

 

WINE ADVOCATE

Score : (91 - 93)

The 2016 Hermitage was more flattering to taste at this stage than the 2015, despite being a year younger. It’s full-bodied, rich and long, with raspberry fruit and a velvety mouthfeel.
