2009 Domaine des Remizieres, Crozes-Hermitage

I am an unabashed lover of Southern Rhone wines.  A lot of that is due not only to my love of Grenache but also the ample supply of well-priced wine.  As a result, I do not have much experience with Northern Rhone wines.   We had drunk one other good 2009 Crozes-Hermitage, the Domaine Les Bruyeres, Les Bruyeres but that cost ~$27.  This bottle, also from MacArthur’s, is only $17.  I grabbed a bottle excited by the vintage and price. I was pleasantly surprised by this wine.

Drunk over two nights the medium+ nose sports a dark purplish nose with dusty herbs, some pepper, roses, and some lifted perfume.  On the second night the pepper become white pepper.  There are big, soft, ripe flavors and immediate tannins.  There is a floral note that is complemented by the developing pepper.  On the second night the flavors rounded out with more pepper, French toast, and a finish of fine tannins.  There are light red fruits in the short aftertaste.  This is an excellent value and shows the potential of this excellent Northern Rhone vintage.  *** Now-2015.
