Guigal Hermitage 1999

Guigal's Hermitage from the 1999 vintage started slowly in the glass.  However, it quickly obtained length and body, with an aroma of game and pepper, and a peppery, savoury palate.  A very enjoyable wine that grows in the glass and is certainly not over the top.  One bottle (of four) was a bit corked.  92 points.

Abv: 13%
Price: $130
