Rhone Book(1997) Author: Robert Parker

Although variable from bottle to bottle, this wine can be Guigal's best recent red Hermitage. Marcel Guigal believes it is the finest Hermitage made at this firm since 1955. I have followed the 1990 since I first tasted its component parts. It exhibits a nose of intense peppery, jammy, black-raspberry fruit intertwined with scents of smoke, vanillin, and spices. With full body, great depth of fruit, purity, and considerable tannin in the finish, it is already approachable because of its long aging in foudres and small barrels. This is a rich, thick, concentrated wine. Last tasted 6/96.

Beautiful aromas of raspberry and cedar follow through on the lush, full palate. It's intense and well crafted, with a long, rich finish. Drink now. 5,000 cases made.

Still in its drinking window. Smooth, submerged tannins. Hints of saddle leather on the nose with black tea on the finish. The mid-palate was rather hollow and nondescript, and the finish was about average. Easy-drinking and food-friendly. Probably has another three to five years of life left, depending upon the bottle.

Garnet with a brick rim. Lovely soft nose with jammy raspberry fruits, smoke and a hint of vanilla. Medium body with good acidity and rich smooth tannins. Intense deep flavours, long into the throat. Sweet red fruits, mixed nuts, smoky tobacco, leather and pepper. Sweet vanilla coated almonds in the long finish. Superb.

Dark purple with tobacco on the nose. This wine is drinking beatifully. Dark fruit and spice mixed with smoke on the palate. Still has plenty of life left.
