User Reviews for E. Guigal St.-Joseph Vignes de l'Hospice

Winemaker's Notes:

One can only imagine what Guigal has done with the 2005 St.-Joseph Vignes des Hospices. This is as profound as the 2003, but in a completely different style, with more acidity, enormous body like the 2003, but not the unctuosity or up-front appeal of that vintage. The 2005 reveals a black/purple color and a gorgeous nose of graphite, creme de cassis, incense, smoke, and spice. Very tannic, with moderately high acidity, and huge extract and richness, this is a monster wine that has more in common with a top cuvee of regular Hermitage than with St.-Joseph. I suspect this wine will need 8-10 years of cellaring, and keep 30-40 years. Food and wine matching: Red meat, game and cheese.
