Vintages 2018

JEB DUNNUCK

Score : 91-93

Not yet bottled, the 2018 Hermitage Blanc offers the more sexy, voluptuous, and supple style of the vintage while still having classic Hermitage depth and minerality. Medium to full-bodied notes of quince, honeyed peach, spice, and floral notes all dominate the bouquet, and it’s certainly going to be an outstanding wine.

 

THE WINE ADVOCATE

Score : (91 - 94)

The 2018 Hermitage Blanc seems even more concentrated than the impressive 2017. Flamed citrus zest marks the nose, while the full-bodied wine is round and rich, finishing with plenty of power and length. Joe Czerwinski
