2019 Domaine des Rémizières Crozes-Hermitage

SKU #1490830 90-92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The base 2019 Crozes-Hermitage looks to be outstanding, with a beautiful purple color, classic Northern Rhône notes of darker fruits, pepper, and gamey tapenade, medium to full body, and a balanced, pure, seamless texture. It should be a smoking value and delivers the goods. Inner quote mark (11/2020)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Whispers of eucalyptus and charred clove lend spice to black-currant and cherry flavors in this 100% Syrah sourced from vines averaging 45 years in age. Matured 15 months in a combination of new and used oak, it’s full bodied and deeply concentrated but maintains freshness and vitality. Delicious now the wine should hold well through 2029. (AI) Inner quote mark (5/2021)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Dark in color for a 'basic' Crozes, the 2019 Crozes Hermitage shows impressive concentration and ripeness, seamlessly marrying black olives and licorice into a rich, full-bodied example of the appellation. Round and velvety, it may lack a bit of nuance, but it's a satisfying mouthful of Syrah for drinking over the next several years. (JC) Inner quote mark (5/2021)

K&L Notes

The Desmeures family of Domaine des Remizières are fourth-generation winemakers who originally sold grapes to the local cooperative. After completing their winery in 1974, the family began production at their new property. The estate is now managed by Phillipe Desmeures, his daughter, Emilie, and son, Christophe. They have expanded to 30 hectares with vineyards in Crozes-Hermitage, Saint-Joseph and Hermitage. Emilie now oversees the winemaking, with her brother Christophe tending to the vineyards. We were excited to add them to our lineup of Direct Imports last year. The basic Crozes-Hermitage comes from the hills of Crozes, on clay-limestone soils with bits of galets (stones) scattered throughout the vineyards. They use 100% destemmed Syrah grapes, then age in large oak casks. About as close to a pure expression of Syrah one could hope to find from this often-overlooked wine region. Praise for the producer from Wine Advocate: "One of my favorite Crozes-Hermitage estates is the Domaine des Rémizières...This estate needs to be on every reader’s short list." (JD, 12/2015)

Every year, this is the little Crozes that could. For under $20, you get a sumptuous, fruit filled, terroir driven, Northern Rhone Syrah that defies its humble price point. I mean really, it's only $17. Generous raspberry and cherry fruit, peppery spices, lavender and sandalwood all hit the palate followed by a whisp of bacon fat. The Remizieres Crozes is so much wine for such a reasonable price.
