Perched on the southwest side of a single, steep, granite hill, exposed to the afternoon sun, sit the coveted vineyards of the tiny Hermitage region. Known as one of the world’s great sites for Syrah, the vineyards of Hermitage produce earthy, tannic wines, bursting with aromas of leather, red berry, blackcurrant, and cocoa. The 2011 Guigal Hermitage comes from 30-year-old vines, and is aged in oak barrels for 36 months. Elegant, structured, and rich, with great balance between ripe fruit and earthy undertones.


92/100 Jeb Dunnuck, eRobertParker.com December 2014 (2011 Vintage)
"Brilliantly perfumed and exuberant, the 2011 Hermitage benefits from the inclusion of the grapes that would normally go into the Ex Voto. Aging in equal parts new and once-used barrels, it has lots of vanilla bean, black currants, cured meats and tobacco leaf aromas and flavours. A classic 2011, with medium to full-bodied richness, loads of texture and a forward, sexy feel, it should be reasonably approachable on release, yet evolve gracefully for 15-20 years."
