Reviews for 1990 Guigal Hermitage

WS 93
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, May 1994
Top 100 1994 Rank #25 - Beautiful aromas of raspberry and cedar follow through on the lush full palate. It's intense and well crafted with a long rich finish...

Although variable from bottle to bottle this wine can be Guigal's best recent red Hermitage. Marcel Guigal believes it is the finest Hermitage made at this firm since 1955. I have followed the 1990 since I first tasted... Although variable from bottle to bottle this wine can be Guigal's best recent red Hermitage. Marcel Guigal believes it is the finest Hermitage made at this firm since 1955. I have followed the 1990 since I first tasted its component parts. It exhibits a nose of intense peppery jammy black-raspberry fruit intertwined with scents of smoke vanillin and spices. With full body great depth of fruit purity and considerable tannin in the finish it is already approachable because of its long aging in foudres and small barrels. This is a rich thick concentrated wine. Anticipated maturity: now-2009. Last tasted 6/96.
