Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: France, Rhône, Hermitage.
Score: 99 RP.
The wine boasts a saturated black/purple color, as well as a phenomenal nose of rose petals, violets, blackberries, cassis, and pain grille. In the mouth, it is phenomenally rich, with a viscous texture, and a multidimensional, layered finish that lasts for over a minute. Its purity, perfect equilibrium, and unbelievable volume and richness are the stuff of legends. Wine Advocate # 121, Feb 1999

Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $180
