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

Initial impressions are smoky and restrained, but a bit of aeration brings out zesty lemon and yellow apple tones here. Made from 100% Marsanne aged seven months in old barriques, it's a vibrantly fruity, fresh-footed expression of Hermitage. The finish is marked by a crisp, mineral lift. Ready now but should hold through 2027. Anna Lee C. Iijima
