2007 Guigal Hermitage Blanc Ex Voto

Guigal is Rhône royalty. Their Ex Voto Hermitage Blanc shows that their mastery extends to whites.

Since its first vintage in 2001, Guigal's Ex Voto has formed a holy trinity with Chave and Chapoutier for Hermitage Blanc.

Guigal's Ex Voto makes a very strong claim to just how noble, complex and graceful Hermitage Blanc can be. This is a wine that demands to be thought of not only in terms of the best of the Northern Rhône, but also in terms of the world's elite, age-worthy wines.

The 2007 Hermitage Blanc Ex Voto delivers an outrageous concentration and layered complexity. There's irresistible suggestions of white truffles, exotic spices and a trail of finely crushed rocks that offer a beautiful back drop to the wine's clear stone fruits. I strongly encourage you to check out a bottle soon and watch its head spinning evolution in the glass, but you should also stash at least a couple of bottles away to watch it gain in depth over the next couple of decades.

2007 was a very strong vintage in the Northern Rhône and Guigal really nailed it. Across the top of their range, the wines show an absolutely majestic, multidimensional presentation married to a classy polish.

Guigal’s success here shouldn’t come as a surprise. Guigal has long been known as a veritable master of the Rhône, crafting benchmark wines with his hyper-attentive winemaking. Ex Voto is sourced from some of Hermitage's top vineyards for whites - Les Murets and l’Ermite.

Ex Voto Blanc is produced in very modest quantities and this is a small parcel. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.
