E.Guigal Hermitage Rouge 2016


There’s no Ex Voto red in this vintage, so that wine has been blended into the 2016 Hermitage. The result is a firm, sturdy wine that needs some time to come around. Cedar and dried spices mark the nose, while the palate is fleshed out by cherry and espresso notes. Full-bodied and supple on the mid-palate, it tightens up considerably on the finish, ending with firm, dusty tannins.
