1999 Domaine des Rémizières Cuvée Émilie  (Hermitage) 93

Good depth of flavor, lots of ripe, dark red roasted fruits, smoke, pepper and earth. Medium/full-bodied, with good energy, the wine has softened and filled out. If you are sitting on any bottles, there is no need to wait for further development.

Deeply colored and filled with fresh picked blackberries, jam, minerals and licorice scents, this deep, rich, full bodied Hermitage wine is still young and shows a lot of freshness. Structured to age, with ample concentration in a full bodied style, the wine ends with long, soft, pure dark fruit notes.

Roasted black fruit, pepper, minerality, mushroom, jam and forest floor aromatics greeted your nose. This young, powerful, full bodied, intense wine has tannin to resolve. But the tannins feel ripe and round. Ripe spicy blackberry flavors dominate the finish.
