E. Guigal

Eye: Deep ruby red with violet tinges. Nose: Spices, red berries and delicate oak aromas. Palate: A powerful and tannic wine. Aromas of blackcurrant buds and vanilla. A spicy finish with liquorice. Overall: A racy and seductive wine. A perfect wine for putting down. Food and wine matching: Small game, red meat and cheese.

Wine Advocate

One of the finest cuvees of regular Hermitage Guigal has ever produced is the 2003 Hermitage. Copiously fruity with a blackberry/cassis liqueur note, huge, flowery, almost chocolatey richness with superb freshness, purity, and a stunning thickness and opulence, this is spectacular Hermitage that should drink well for 30+ years.

Score: 94. —Robert Parker, April 2007.

Wine Spectator

Ripe and concentrated, this shows plum, currant and cherry fruit intertwined with spice, espresso and black licorice notes. Has a tarry, slightly raisined edge to the finish, but the structure and heady fruit take an encore, boding well for cellaring, though you may always wrestle with the tannins. Best from 2008 through 2017.

Score: 93. —James Molesworth, June 30, 2007.
