Remizieres “l’Essentiel” Hermitage 2003

Posted on

Deep red.

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.

$150.
