2017 remi niero, cote rotie, eminence
Why We're Buying
Eminence offers superb value in Côte Rôtie based on quality and price. A product of Remi Niero, formerly known as Domaine Remi & Robert Niero, this syrah delivers a complete mouthfeel with firm but ripe tannins and a hint of spice. It also appreciated 45.1% from 2017 to 2021.
Lurid violet color. Assertive aromas of black raspberry, cherry liqueur, licorice and potpourri, with a bright mineral nuance adding lift. Seamless, pliant and broad on the palate, offering energetic red/blue fruit, spicecake and violet pastille flavors that are complemented by a smoky bacon quality. Lively and sharply delineated in style, finishing with fine-grained, slow-building tannins and strong, mineral- and floral-driven persistence.
