2003 E. Guigal Hermitage

SKU #1030255 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2003 Hermitage is a beauty that shows the best of this extreme, freakishly hot vintage. Full-bodied, plump, textured, and concentrated, it offers ample plums, violets, barbecued meats, licorice and a touch of mint. The tannin showed a touch of worrisome rusticity at first, but this was quickly covered up by masses of sweet fruit and texture as the wine sat in the glass. I'd drink bottles over the coming decade, and assuming its tannin stays nicely balanced and sweet, it will hold for even longer. (JD) Inner quote mark (9/2015)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Ruby-red. Fresh raspberry and cherry on the nose, with a suave floral quality adding complexity. Seemed to gain freshness with air, the fruit picking up zesty minerality and sexy baking spices. Undeniably rich but this possesses uncanny elegance and vivacity for an Hermitage, much less one from this hot vintage. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2008)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Ripe and concentrated, this shows plum, currant and cherry fruit intertwined with spice, espresso and black licorice notes. Has a tarry, slightly raisined edge to the finish, but the structure and heady fruit take an encore, boding well for cellaring, though you may always wrestle with the tannins. (JM) Inner quote mark (6/2007)
