Winemaker Notes

Brilliant clean straw yellow. Powerful and intense aromas of white flowers, acacia honey, hawthorn blossom. Rich and full-bodied, expressive of the terroir which lends this Hermitage body and strength. Balance between a delicate and expressive nose and fleshy fruit on the palate underpinned y the powerful terroir.

Produced only in exceptional vintages, the Ermitage Ex-Voto is the expression of a sincere desire to own vines in the Hermitage appellation and to produce an exceptional wine which reflects the soul of this prestigious appellation of the Rhône Valley.

Blend: 90% Marsanne and 10% Roussanne.

Jeb Dunnuck
Tasted out of bottle, the 2015 Hermitage Ex Voto Blanc is heavenly stuff that won’t hit the market until February. Reminiscent of the 2005 (or is it the 2009?) with its huge, thick, unctuous texture, it’s loaded with notions of buttered citrus, white currants, flower oil, and honeycomb, with its 100% new oak élevage completely absorbed by its wealth of fruit. This tour de force in winemaking needs 4-5 years of cellaring and will keep for 3-4 decades.

Features a gorgeous brioche frame around the creamed pear, yellow apple, quince and white peach flavors, with glistening verbena, honeysuckle and green almond notes on the finish. Showy and beautiful.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Sourced from the Les Murets (80%) and L'Hermite (20%) lieux-dits, the 2015 Hermitage Ex Voto Blanc is a big, full-bodied wine that was 100% barrel-fermented in new oak. Toast marks the nose, but the wine is shut down right now and perplexingly difficult to evaluate. The long, crushed-stone finish suggests better things lie ahead.
Rating: 94+?

Wine & Spirits

The Guigals make Ex Voto only in years they consider exceptional, and focus the white wine on two parcels of the Hermitage hill: the rocky, alluvial Les Murets, and the sandy loess soils of L’Ermite. Mostly marsanne, vinified and aged for 30 months in new oak casks, it’s a lush, full-bodied white that wraps its mineral flavors in warming notes of caramel and spice. While the oak is very present, it’s also in proportion to the depth of fruit and firm structure, which bodes well for this wine’s development over the next 10 to 15 years.

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast

Smoke, cedar and vanilla tones are pronounced now, but plenty of succulent white peach, apricot and tangerine pulses at the core of this generous white. Rippling and rich yet freshly balanced, it’s a sturdy bottling built for the long haul. Drink through 2026.

Guigal Chateau d'Ampuis Winery Image

The Guigal domain was founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal in the ancient village of Ampuis, home of the wines of the Côte-Rôtie. In these vineyards that are over 2400 years old, you can still see the small terraced walls characteristic of the Roman period. Etienne Guigal arrived in this region in 1923 at the age of 14. He made wine for over 67 vintages and, at the beginning of his career, participated in the development of the Vidal-Fleury establishment.

Despite his young age, Marcel Guigal took over from his father in 1961 when the latter was victim to a brutal illness rendering him blind. Marcel's hard work and perseverance enabled the Guigals to buy out Vidal-Fleury in 1984, although the establishment retains its own identity and commercial autonomy. In 2000, the Guigals purchased the Jean-Louis Grippat estate in Saint-Joseph and Hermitage, as well as the Domaine de Vallouit in Côte-Rôtie, Hermitage, Saint-Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage.

In the cellars of the Guigal estate in Ampuis, the northern appellations of the Rhône Valley are produced and aged. These are the appellations of Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, Hermitage, Saint-Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage. The great appellations of the Southern Rhône, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Tavel and Côtes-du-Rhône, are also aged in the Ampuis cellars.
