One of the powerhouses of the Rhône and a name synonymous with beautifully crafted wines from some of the regions finest vineyard sites. After 15 years working at Vidal-Fleury, Etienne Guigal formed his own estate in 1946, joined by his son Marcel in 1961 and by 1984, they had purchased Vidal-Fleury and took control of 35% of the Côte Rôtie harvest. They purchased the Château d'Ampuis in 1995, today fully restored, it is the headquarters of the estate and home to the Guigal cooperage. Marcel's son, Phillipe is the winemaker and Guigal produce a range of stunning wines from across the terroirs of the Rhône.
The 2006 Hermitage Ex-Voto is slightly denser, revealing gorgeous aromas of black raspberries, black currants, graphite, herbs, and truffles. Elegant yet substantial in size, well-textured, and long, this superb wine should age effortlessly for 25-30 years. Wine Advocate # 182; Apr 2009 Robert Parker (93-95+) Drink: 2009 - 2039
