  • What an incredible experience. Beautiful golden colour, with thick viscosity. On the nose, complex aromas of apricots, marzipan, varnish. On the palate, beautiful bitter-sweet bright fruit with layers of complexity, and beautiful balance. Drinking very well, will easily go 10 years.

  • WOW! What a spectacular white wine. Golden color with such richness of fruit with a slightly sweet edge. This is contrasted by acidity and some slightly bitter flavors that give this wine such complexity and depth. It finishes with lovely smooth sweetness and goes on and on.

  • Ett djupt gyllene vin med svaga rödtoner. En doft av mogna äpple, honung, marsipan, mineral men väl oxiderade toner som går igenom med en touch av torr sherry.
    Otroligt kraftfullt och smörigt i smaken med bakade äpple, honung, mineral och lång, lång eftersmak. Men även här går de oxiderade tonerna igenom en aning för mycket.
    Men jag blir inte riktigt klok på det här vinet. Vi provade 5 årgångar 2003, 2006, 2007, 2009 och 2010. Philippe Guigal som var med på provningen ansåg att Ex-Voto Blanc har en potential på minst 30 år och blir bara bättre och bättre med tiden.
    I mitt tycke var den unga 2010:an helt outstanding i provningen med sin fantastiska unga fräschör och ända otroligt koncentrerat och balanserat. Utifrån 2010:an blev vinet bara succesivt sämre ju äldre årgång vi provade. Både 2006:an och 2003:an hade oxiderade toner med inslag av torr Sherry som jag hade väldigt svårt för. Hur det här vinet skall kunna vara bra om 30 år förstår jag inte. Men ungt är det helt fantastiskt.
    90% Marsanne och 10% Roussanne och 30 månader på ny ek.

  • Guigal Brief Masterclass (Cellier Wine Loft, Athens, Greece.): Dark gold. Expressive, but continuously evolving nose with candied apricot, marzipan, sweet oak, intense pine trees honey that became dominant after aeration and hints of oxidation. Full-bodied, thick and oily textured with huge extract but nicely balanced by sufficient acidity to avoid being flabby or cloying. Endless aftertaste. A characterful love-it-or-hate-it wine.

  • Lemon-gold with complex nose changing over time revealing honey, quince, marzipan, a lot of oak and some oxidative hints. Massive on palate with soft acidity, low tannins and persistent finish. A wine that makes you think with great ageing potential.
