"Guigal is the axis upon which the northern Rhône rests, a producer whose wines transcend all levels of the hierarchy..." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate notes that Guigal "is producing some of the most incredible and singular wines in the world," and with over thirty WA100 point wines to their credit it’s hard to argue that they’re not in the very upper echelon of producers in the world. When you couple that talent with a Northern Rhone vintage with universal praise (WS98, WA97) magic is bound to happen, as is the case with the 2010 Guigal Hermitage.
The Guigal name is synonymous with quality, a name that you will feel comfortable purchasing whenever it crosses your path. While most well-known for spell bounding and historic Cote Rotie's (the trio of “La-La’s”), Guigal excels with Hermitage as well and this bottling is “always one of the smartest buys in high-end Northern Rhone reds,” per the Wine Spectator.
Guigal is, quite simply, a northern Rhone legend, "one of the reference point estates for top quality wines in the world today" (WA), creating wines that Robert Parker has described as "compelling as any [wine] available anywhere in the world!" Hailed as “Another stunning wine from the 2010 vintage” by the Wine Advocate, the 2010 Guigal Hermitage is a must for any fan of the Northern Rhone. We have a small parcel arriving later this year, so lock in yours today. Cheers!
