Their was an earthiness where I was expecting meat and pepper. Still extremely good and with great depth. — 4 years ago

Gambert de Loche Hermitage Syrah 2010

Tough Hermitage competition last night and it ranked slightly behind top producers JL Chave and Jaboulet (La Chapelle). Not quite as long and explosive, but who’s to complain — 4 months ago

Hermitage Syrah 1988

Still alive. A bit cloudy, friable cork (glad I had a Durand available!). Better with a couple hours of air. — 5 months ago

Hermitage Syrah 1988

1988 | Syrah
E. Guigal; Hermitage
Northern Rhone; Tain l'Hermitage, France

Crushed ripe cherry, bacon & fat, crushed Hemlock needles, granite, damp compost, slight barnyard; Ripe black cherry, dried blackberry, black currant, red pepper skin. Tannins persist. Drink 2025-32+

Much brighter on both nose/palate than my other Hermitage experiences. Perhaps I prefer the dried fruit/leather notes showing with more age...
(93-94 points)

Paired to lamb schnitzel, just wonderful together.

You’re an inspiration! I hope to have a cellar as deep as yours someday. My knees for your ‘88’s!

@Severn Goodwin , I used to have 1982/1983 and 1985 Guigal Hermitage (as well as the regular Cote Rotie from those years), all really fine and criminally underrated, IMHO!!

Première Note Syrah

Surprisingly good, and as clearly northern Rhone syrah as any wine can be. It has the strong fruit and the floral complexity, but remains smooth on the palette and well balanced. — 4 years ago
