Lot #368. Delas Hermitage Les Bessards 1999

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: France, Rhône, Hermitage.
Score: 98 WA.
"I was blown away by the 1999 Hermitage Les Bessards, and I seriously considered adding another point or two to the score. One of the most complex, classic and multidimensional in the lineup, it offers lots of crushed rock-like minerality, smoked black fruits, spice and licorice aromas and flavors. These give way to a full-bodied, deeply concentrated, layered and perfectly balanced wine that had me wishing it was the end of the day so I could drink the whole glass. It's a gorgeous wine . . ."
