Not as deep crimson as most of the Australians, and at first the nose was very much simpler and somehow fruitier (despite all that famous oaking regime in Ampuis!). It was clearly lighter in weight than most of the rest with black pepper notes and quite distinctive. I wondered whether it could be a Victorian Shiraz, perhaps Heathcote, but as it opened in the glass it was clear that this was a Rhône. Appetising, well-mannered. Quite marked natural acidity (unlike the Rosemount wine I tried immediately before it). Dry and distinctive.

The Maison GUIGAL vinifies and ages in its cellars, in Ampuis, the northern appellations of the Rhône Valley which are Côte-RôtieCondrieuHermitageSaint-Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage. The aging of the southern appellations Châteauneuf-du-PapeGigondas, Tavel and Côtes-du-Rhône is also assured in the Ampuis cellars.


The Hermitage 'Ex-Voto' is produced in the greatest vintages while the Saint-Joseph 'Lieu-Dit Saint-Joseph' in white and red and the famous Saint-Joseph red 'Vignes de l'Hospice' constitute references for this Appellation.


Among the jewels of the Domaine Guigal there are the inevitable Côte Rôtie "La Landonne", "La Turque" and "La Mouline". Known throughout the world, wine lovers of the Rhône are tearing themselves away. Some great vintages: 19781982198519881989199119951997199920032005
