Remizieres “l’Essentiel” Hermitage 2003
Vinturi – kalamata/dried fig reduction (is that possible?), impossibly deep nose. Menthol note as it airs.
Round and completely mouth-filling like no French Syrah I’ve had.. And unlike several other 2003 northern Rhones I’ve tasted – there is no hiccup in the mid-palate. This flows throughout. Concentrated to the hilt, but remains reasonably fresh till the end. Actually a middle-weight in an extreme vintage.
Thursday through Sunday
11:00 am to 4:00 pm
