E Guigal Hermitage Rouge 2017

asting
Eye : Deep ruby red with violet tinges.
Nose : Spices, red berries and delicate oak aromas.
Palate : A powerful and tannic wine. Aromas of blackcurrant buds
and vanilla. Licorice and spicy

Overall : A racy and seductive wine. A perfect wine for putting down

Score : (91-93)
The 2016 Hermitage shows the more medium to full-bodied style
of the vintage and has perfumed, even pretty notes of black and
blue fruits, violets, and that classic Hermitage minerality. It’s
rounded and supple on the palate yet has plenty of underlying
tannins. It’s not going to match the 2015 but is in the same overall
ballpark as the 2014.

E Guigal Hermitage Rouge 2017

A structured, full-bodied wine with the elegant tannins characteristic of
careful barrel ageing. A great wine which deserves patient bottle ageing.
« Vintage after vintage, the Collection wines have become symbols
which perfectly illustrate the family’s ethos of supreme quality. Careful
ageing, together with the meticulous attention paid every day by Marcel
and Philippe Guigal to the selection and blending processes, bring to the
fore the consistency and excellence of the great appellations of the Rhône
