The "Les Donnières" Rouge is crafted from 100% Syrah from 35-year-old vines planted in clay and limestone soils. It is fermented in concrete vats and aged for 18 months in French oak (30% new). 

96 points, Jeb Dunnuck
"Smoked earth, blueberries, blackberries, graphite, and huge minerality all emerge from the 2015 Ermitage Les Dionnières, which comes from older vines planted on the eastern/lower section of Hermitage, in more sedimentary soils. Full-bodied, concentrated, stacked and packed, with sweet, building tannin, forget bottles for 4-6 years and enjoy over the following two+ decades. The only downside to these latest releases from Ferraton? They’re made in tiny quantities and there’s just not enough to go around. For readers who don’t know, this estate is managed by Michel Chapoutier, yet they have their own vineyard sources and winemaking team." (1/2018)

94-96 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2015 Ermitage "Les Dionnières" ... has huge, unctuous aromas and flavors of ripe black cherries, black currants, framboise, crushed rocks, and graphite. Coming from a site located on the eastern edge of the appellation, it has a huge mid-palate, integrated acidity and the sweet, sweet tannin that’s common in the vintage." (1/2016)

94 points, Vinous
"Brilliant violet. Vibrant, sharply focused black and blue fruit scents are complicated by exotic spice, olive paste and mineral notes. Sweet and precise on the palate, showing energetic lift to concentrated blueberry, violet pastille, and spice cake flavors that show a surprisingly delicate touch for their power. Picks up a smoky quality with air and finishes sweet, supple and impressively long; discreet tannins add shape and gentle grip." (1/2018)

93 points, Wine Spectator
"This is packed with warm fig, boysenberry and blackberry confiture notes, supported by commensurate graphite and warm charcoal accents. Best from 2020 through 2032." (1/2017)
