2007 E. Guigal "Ex-Voto" Hermitage Blanc

SKU #1059311 95 points Wine Spectator

 Intense, with gorgeously pure salted butter, brioche, paraffin, creamed yellow apple, anise and persimmon notes all woven together and pushed by a broad but well-focused finish. This has the length to let everything take an encore. Impressive.  (11/ 2010)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright gold. Aromas of fresh pit fruits, orange marmalade, honey and pungent spices, with a smoky overtone. Lush and creamy in texture, offering mineral-drenched peach, pear and floral flavors and an exotic touch of candied licorice. Rich but lively, with outstanding finishing clarity and lingering smokiness.  (3/ 2012)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2007 Hermitage Ex-Voto Blanc enjoys the same 100% new oak treatment and 30 months aging in barrel (an uncommonly long time for a dry white wine, but these wines are so concentrated and full, they can easily handle their long aging). The 2007 is more closed than the 2006, revealing a light gold color along with hints of crushed rocks, white currants, quince, hazelnut and marmalade, excellent acidity and super intensity but much less evolution, which is atypical for this vintage. Cellar it for several years and consume it over the following two decades.  (2/ 2011)

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
