E. Guigal Hermitage 2017 (94 VM)

Deep, vivid ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe dark berries, cherry liqueur, floral and exotic spices, with botanical herb, game and olive notes in the background. Concentrated but energetic as well, offering sharply defined blackberry, bitter cherry, candied violet, vanilla and exotic spice flavors with a touch of spicy cracked pepper. Clings with strong tenacity on the penetrating finish, which is framed by well-absorbed tannins. 50% new oak.” J.R 12/22

    Hermitage is one of France’s most spectacular and famous appellations, producing small quantities of extraordinarily intense and ageworthy red wine and tiny amounts of dry white. The entire vineyard consists of 309 acres planted on a single granite hillside on the banks of the Rhône. The Hermitage Rouge is the example of a racy wine, that manages to remain seductive.
