"The 2003 Hermitage Ex-Voto (fewer than 4,000 bottles produced) is one of the most profound red Hermitages ever made. Fashioned from some of Guigal's favorite Hermitage parcels, Les Bessards (30%), Les Greffieux (30%), l'Hermite (20%), and Les Murets (20%), it is not as over the top as one might suspect (less than 15% alcohol), but it is off the charts in terms of richness, intensity, and full-bodied power. Amazing flavors of creme de cassis, black truffles, fudge, and earth are found in this superb, rich, profoundly great Hermitage. It should hit its peak in 5-7 years, and will last for a half century."
