95 points Decanter: "A measured and elegant medium-bodied style, firm, fresh and mineral. It has very fine tannins and a spark of juicy acidity which frame the brisk, incense-tinged berry fruits. This is very much at the finer, slimmer end of the Hermitage spectrum. Excellent control, poise and drinkability. Drinking Window: 2019-2028. (Jun 2019)"

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Burning embers, toasted spice, graphite, and terrific currant-like fruits emerge from the 2017 Hermitage Les Dionnières, which is medium to full-bodied and nicely balanced, with silky tannins and a beautiful finish. It has an approachable, seamless style, yet still has enough tannins to warrant just short-term cellaring. It's a seamless, character-filled Hermitage with loads to love. Drink: 2023-2038. (12/12/19)"

93 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "The 2017 Hermitage les Dionnieres matures in two-year-old barriques, so there is a subtle wood component here, which nicely frames the blueberry fruit. Medium to full-bodied, the tannins are firm but ripe, imparting a tight-knit, silky feel on the palate, while the finish is long and complex, adding hints of crushed stone and black olives. Give it a few years in the cellar and drink it over the next 10-15 years. Drink: 2022-2035. (Dec 2019)"
