  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    Dark ruby. Ripe plum, cherry pit and a suggestion of licorice on the smoky nose. Lush, smoky cherry and cassis flavors are brightened by juicy acidity and put on weight with air. Finishes very long and smoky, with smooth tannins and notes of bitter chocolate and anise. Shows surprising heft and generosity for the vintage, and it's drinkable now.

    One of the more upfront, sexy, soft and hedonistic wines in the retrospective, the 2007 Hermitage - which does not include the grapes that went into the Ex Voto - is loaded with sweet black raspberry and cassis fruits, licorice, incense and spice. Mouthfilling, ripe, forward and beautifully textured, even with some elegance, it has a drink me now feel and should be at its best over the coming 5-7 years.

  • Marcel Guigal - the so-called "pivot" of the Cote-Rotie appellation - is both an owner and negociant, and vinifies over 40% of all Cote-Rotie. His father, Etienne, started out quite modestly in 1946, and over the next decades the company has grown to encompass all that is best in the Rhone Valley. Not only known for the massive hits in Hermitage and Cote-Rotie, the Guigal name is synonymous with quality all along the scale, from the humble Cotes-du-Rhone to the Big Three - La Landonne, La Mouline and La Turque.
