E. Guigal Hermitage 2012
Deep ruby red with violet tinges. Spices, red berries and delicate oak aromas on the nose. A powerful, tannic wine with aromas of blackcurrant buds and vanilla. Licorice and spicy finish. A perfect wine for cellaring.
Antonio Galloni/Vinous – (Aged in 50% new oak barrels for three years): Opaque ruby. Smoke- and black pepper-accented dark berries, licorice and olive on the deeply perfumed, expansive nose. Gently sweet black and blue fruit flavors become livelier and spicier with air, picking up suggestions of black cardamom and cola. Sappy, penetrating and smoky on the tenacious finish, which features building tannins and resonating floral and peppery spice qualities.
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – Showing even better than last year, the 2012 Hermitage shows the more exuberant, sexy and sunny nature of the vintage to a T. Toasted bread, vanilla bean, black raspberries and spiced meat-like aromas all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, forward, seamless beauty that will deliver tons of pleasure over the coming 15 or more years.
