Vintages 2017

JEB DUNNUCK

Score : (91-93)

The 2017 Hermitage will be another outstanding wine. Showing plenty of classic cassis, tobacco, and dark fruits as well as background oak, it’s a young, unevolved, balanced, promising barrel sample.

WINE ADVOCATE

Score : (91 - 93)

Hints of pencil shavings and crushed stone mark the nose of the 2017 Hermitage. It's medium to full-bodied, loaded with chunky cassis fruit and rich tannins. It looks to be another successful vintage for this cuvée.
