Jean-Claude et Nicolas Fayolle 2017 Les Dionnières (Hermitage)

Editors' Choice

Sunburned bramble and granite tones lend savory complexity to rich, almost jammy blackberry and boysenberry flavors in this opulent Syrah sourced from 40-year-old vines. It's a uniquely glossy, ample expression of Hermitage that shows well even in youth, but firm, gripping tannins are likely to ease through 2030. A wine that should drink well for decades. Anna Lee C. Iijima
