E. Guigal : Hermitage 1997

A distinguished Hermitage red wine

A single-varietal Syrah red wine produced in the Hermitage appellation, the Hermitage Rouge of E. Guigal comes from the mythical plots of Beaumes, Méal, Bessards and Hermite. Aged 30 years on average, the vines are planted on clay-limestone and sandy-gravelly soils. The wine is matured in oak barrels (half in new barrels) for 36 months.

The L'Hermitage Rouge 1997 of E. Guigal displays a deep ruby red colour with purplish reflections. The complex nose develops aromas of spices, small red fruits and a subtle woodiness. It reveals itself to be solid and tannic on the palate, offering nice flavours of blackcurrant and vanilla before final touches of licorice and spices. A distinguished and seductive wine to consume now.

Please note that this commentary will naturally be brought into question depending on the evolution of the product over time.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Marcel Guigal finds working in Hermitage the most difficult given the extremely high prices asked by growers as well as the difficulty in finding top cuvees. However, he buys from very good producers, and in 1997 has fashioned an excellent, seductive Hermitage rouge. It possesses a dense ruby color, abundant cassis fruit, excellent texture, sweet tannin, and a low acid, long finish. It is a wine to drink over the next 10-12 years.
