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. Anticipated maturity: now-2009. Last tasted 696.

The Guigal family owns no vineyards in Hermitage, but meticulously purchases wine that has been vinified by the grower according to the Guigal formula. Guigal produces his red Hermitage from 100% Syrah, refusing to blend in the 15% white wine permitted by law. Just under 2,000 cases of red Hermitage are produced. Guigal does not fine the wine and will not filter it if it falls brilliant naturally by virtue of its very long aging (three years) in wooden barrels and large foudres. He is a believer in long wood aging for Syrah, learning from his father that extended cask and foudre aging for Syrah usually leads to a softer, more complex wine. Consequently, he is always the last to bottle his red Hermitage.Guigal plays it close to the vest with respect to where he purchases his Hermitage juice, but the Fayolles, occasionally Bernard Faurie, and the two Sorrels (Jean-Michel and Marc) are known to be suppliers to Guigal. Marcel Guigal has also confessed to me that he will not be content until he becomes the proprietor of some Hermitage vineyards. With the vastwealth this firm has earned from its worldwide success, readers should not be surprised to find out in the future that Guigal has purchased some important vineyards in this hallowed appellation.

(05-1994) Beautiful arômes de framboise et de cèdre suite à la luxuriante, le palais intégral. C'est intense et bien conçu, avec une finale longue et riche.
