Description

Another perfect wine, the 2009 Hermitage Ex-Voto is surprisingly supple and more approachable than the two single vineyard 2009 Cote Roties, La Turque and La Landonne. The massive Ex-Voto boasts abundant notes of spring flowers, blackberries, cassis, licorice, graphite and forest floor. Extremely full-bodied with sweet tannin and levels of extravagance and flamboyance that are mind-boggling, it will drink well for 30+ years.

Producer Information: E. Guigal

Etienne Guigal left neighbouring firm, Vidal Fleury in 1946 to set up on his own. In 1985 he bought out his former employers. The négociant is now run by his son Marcel.

The jewels in their crown are four exquisite vineyard sites in Côte Rôtie. Guigal makes this wines in a quite unique style using new oak barrels and then allowed to settle in both small barriques and large oak foudres. This allows the wine to settle naturally through its second winter. There is no fining or filtration.

Their other great wine is Condrieu, whose quality has been amplified since the acquisition of some of the regions finest.

The greatness of this estate prompted Robert Parker to write ‘I don’t believe there is another wine maker or wine producing estate in the world that has ever put together such an array of monumental wines as these.’
