I bought this bottle of wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/46059.Hermitage is one of the most prestigious appellations in the Rhone valley having once been favoured by Louis XIV and the Russian tsars.It takes its name from a chapel or hermitage built in 1224 by a crusader knight called Caspar de Sterimberg on a hill above the town of Tain on the east bank of the Rhone river about 40 miles south of Lyon.The Hermitage AOC consists of the slopes of this hill while the larger but less prestigious AOC of Croze-Hermitage is at the base of the hill. Domaine des Remizieres is owned and run by Phillippe Desmeures and consists of 30 hectares spread over Hermitage,Crozes-Hermitage and St.Joseph.The wine is 100% syrah and is aged in oak barrels for 18 months.I started my bottle last night as an accompaniment to my meat pie and I enjoyed it very much.There is some intense blackberry or cherry like fruit there with a pepper or spicy aftertaste.The wine is well structured and the tannins were not intrusive.In short this is a lovely wine and I can see why the wine writer Robert Parker has a high opinion of this estate
