Refined and classy. This elegant medium- to full-bodied Hermitage fans out on the palate with a wonderful mineral flavor cassis roasted chestnut ripe fig. But it is the texture that is so seductive--both firm and smooth... Refined and classy. This elegant medium- to full-bodied Hermitage fans out on the palate with a wonderful mineral flavor cassis roasted chestnut ripe fig. But it is the texture that is so seductive--both firm and smooth. Long charming citrusy finish. Tempting now but built for the cellar. Best from 2005 through 2020. 3300 cases made. –PM

In stark contrast to the evolved, tired '00, the still inky ruby-colored 1999 Hermitage Marquise de la Tourette was still lively and fresh, with classic dark fruits, tobacco leaf, cured meats and chocolate aromas and flavors giving way to a full-bodied, fleshy, textured Hermitage that has sweet tannin and nicely integrated acidity. Aged in equal parts new and once-used barrels, drink it anytime over the coming decade. - Jeb Dunnuck
