Bacon fat, far more then any of the other Hermitage. Guigal makin' a Cotie Rotie in Hermitage. Still pretty bad ass but the most strutured we have tasted. And tons of fruit, the most fruit we have tasted in Hermitage. And its young. The Guigals are pretty impressive.
Red 2007 Guigal Masterclass (Stockholm): Dark red colour, some purple. Powerful nose with quite dark berries, powerful concentration of aromas, tar and liquorice, some leather, noticeable but well integrated oak, some flowery notes. Palate with powerful concentration, dark berries, noticeable acidity, quite powerful - almost massive - tannins. The aftertaste is long, fruity and tart. Young, reasonably approachable. 94+ p Not entirely unlike La Turque, but a bit more in the massively fruity direction. Ex Voto and La Turque are more similar than La Turque and La Landonne!
