E. Guigal Crozes-Hermitage 2019 / 750 ml.

Item#: 35661

VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2022
Dark violet color. Pungent cherry and blackberry on the fragrant nose, along with hints of black pepper, olive and baking spices. Appealingly sweet and pliant in texture, offering energetic red and dark berry, star anise and candied violet flavors that are braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Smooth tannins frame a long, spicy finish that strongly echoes the dark berry note. (Josh Raynolds)
JD9191 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 2/16/2022
The 2019 Crozes-Hermitage is a spicy, complex, incredibly satisfying Crozes with textbook darker berry fruits as well as notes of peppery herbs, violets, and loamy earth. The tannins are nicely integrated and perfectly ripe, and it’s going to evolve gracefully for a decade. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 10th Feb 2022
The only one of the 2019 reds to have been bottled at the time of my visit, the 2019 Crozes Hermitage is a super effort, and it should represent a terrific value (the 2018 sells for about $30). Hints of violets accent blueberries and cassis on the nose in this full-bodied, concentrated offering. Rich, velvety and a bit tannic, it’s an impressive négoce bottling. (Joe Czerwinski)
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 28, 2022
A perfumed style, with silky-edged red currant and Damson notes flecked with sandalwood, white pepper and sanguine hints that then linger prettily on the dusty finish. Drink now through 2025. 2,500 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

Where It's From

Region / Rhone

View more wines from Rhone

France's picturesque Rhone Valley produces wines just as beautiful as its landscapes. Located in Southern France, the Rhone is divided into two distinct sub-regions, the Northern Rhone and Southern Rhone. In the Northern Rhone, you'll find red wines produced predominantly with the Syrah grape, which oftentimes take a few years to mature before reaching their peak. Meanwhile, there are a wide array of red grapes used to produce wines in the Southern Rhone, including Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre (which together produce a blend known as GSM). The most famous red wine coming out of the Southern Rhone is the red blend, Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.

Item #: 56106

RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 13th May 2021
Big florals and raspberries mark the nose of Saint Cosme’s 2019 Cote Rotie. Hints of stems show through, and this wine clearly would benefit from a few years in the cellar, but it is far from being unapproachable. Normally a blend of several lieux-dits, it sees about 30% new oak in its élevage, but the wood is scarcely noticeable. Medium to full-bodied, creamy and supple on the palate, with a long, fruit-infused finish, this should age gracefully for a decade or more.
SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 15, 2021
A racy, high-pitched, mineral-driven style, with raspberry and damson plum coulis notes pierced with savory and sanguine accents. The long, tight-grained, iron-edged finish resonates. Best from 2022 through 2034. 2,000 cases made, 370 cases imported.

Mouthfilling, with a delicious gush of warmed blackberry and boysenberry compote flavors backed by licorice, bramble and sweet tapenade notes, which contrast with the fruit nicely. Features a nice buried iron spine on the finish. Best from 2024 through 2038. 500 cases made, 25 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
JD93+93–95+ pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 3/5/2021
The 2019 Côte Rôtie Vieilles Vignes offers slightly more dark fruit and minerality as well as a more concentrated yet backward style on the palate. Full-bodied and structured, with terrific purity, it’s going to require more bottle age than the base and, but it should have two-plus decades of longevity. (Jeb Dunnuck)

Shimmering ruby. Lively, spice-accented cherry and black raspberry aromas, along with subtle smoked meat and floral accents. Juicy and energetic in style, offering gently sweet red and dark berry and baking spice flavors and hints of licorice and cola. Shows very good focus on a long, spice-tinged finish that features gentle, even tannins. No new oak. (Josh Raynolds)

Deep ruby. Spice-accented aromas of blackcurrant, kirsh and olive paste aromas, along with a mineral top note. Sappy, sweet and expansive on the palate, offering juicy red and blue fruit preserves, cracked pepper and a violet pastille nuance. Dusty tannins give shape to the persistent finish, which leaves behind sappy floral and spice notes. (Josh Raynolds)
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 20th Jan 2022
One of the few 2019s to be marked by cracked pepper aromas, the cherry-scented 2019 Saint Joseph les Salamandres is only medium-bodied, but it is concentrated and supple, with a long, silky finish. Drink it over the next 5 years or so. (Joe Czerwinski)

Picked later than the 2015, the 2016 Cote Rotie La Mouline shows more dark fruit in its profile — think cassis and black olives — plus licorice and peppery spice. It’s full-bodied, rich and supple, with a long finish. It may be nearly as good as the 2015, yet it’ll be drinkable close to release.

This is packed with dark fig, blackberry and black cherry compote flavors, all wrapped in apple wood and bacony toast before ending with a swath of warm earth on the finish. Rock-solid, with range and depth for the cellar. Best from 2022 through 2035. 600 cases made, 100 cases imported.
RP94+94–97 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 19th Dec 2019
Featuring pronounced violet aromas and spice-riddled red berries on the nose, the full-bodied 2018 Saint-Joseph Vignes de l’Hospice is eerily reminiscent of the 2015. It’s full-bodied, plush and velvety, yet it retains great detail and complexity, finishing long and elegant.
JD93+93–95 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 12/12/2019
Cut from the same cloth yet more rounded, supple, and sexy, the 2018 Saint Joseph Vignes des Hospices is another Hermitage look-alike with its burning embers, graphite, crushed flowers, and meaty dark fruits. I love its texture, it’s full-bodied and concentrated, and it will be drinkable at an earlier age than the 2017. (Jeb Dunnuck)

JD98+98–100 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 2/16/2022
The 2018 Côte Rôtie La Turque offers meatier, more savory, mineral-driven aromatics yet has an incredible core of pure cassis and darker fruits. A straight-up massive wine, it has a stacked mid-palate, terrific freshness, and again, a purity of fruit that’s just off the chart. Despite its overall size and richness, it’s weightless and as graceful as a ballerina. It always needs more time to come around compared to the La Mouline and generally starts to drink beautifully a decade after the vintage. (Jeb Dunnuck)
SP9696 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 27, 2023
Shows beautiful freshness, despite its age, weight and power, with red currant, mulled blackberry and floral notes floating atop earthy singed tobacco and toasty cedar elements. Just hitting its stride, matching exotic spices with smoke, minerality and a pleasingly dense texture. The lengthy finish reveals baker’s chocolate and toasted herbs. Excellent. Drink now through 2039. (Kristen Bieler)
RP94+94–96+? pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 10th Feb 2022
Shut down tight on this occasion, the dark, impenetrable 2018 Cote Rotie La Turque is clearly dense and packed with potential. Cedary notes, dark, concentrated fruit, potent tannins and a long, dusty finish suggest plenty of upside for the patient.

Inky magenta. Candied cherry, blackcurrant, exotic spices, violet oil and a hint of olive on the powerfully scented nose. Velvety, seamless and alluringly sweet, offering palate-staining, mineral-laced black/blue fruit preserve, floral pastille, smoky bacon and spicecake flavors that open up steadily on the back half. Displays sharp delineation and a resonating floral note on a strikingly long finish that’s framed by plush, rounded tannins.

Item #: 5322

JD9090 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 2/16/2022
I’m always amazed at the quality this estate gets in the Côtes du Rhône, especially at the quantities produced. Their 2018 Côtes Du Rhône is well worth seeking out and has a medium-bodied, round, silky style as well as textbook peppery herbs, violets, bouquet garni, and both red and black fruits. It shows the supple, charming, forward style of the vintage and is ideal for drinking over the coming 4–5 years. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP89+89–91 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Oct 2019
Looking more complex and complete than the 2017 at this point, the 2018 Cotes du Rhone still has a year or so of élevage ahead of it. It has a slightly herbal, briary note, dark berry fruit and hints of mocha on the full-bodied palate. Round and fleshy, it finishes smooth and velvety. (Joe Czerwinski)
RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 10th Feb 2022
Guigal’s 2018 Cotes du Rhone is a fun, fruit-driven vintage of a wine whose normal style tends more toward “serious.” It’s medium to full-bodied but refreshingly supple, with juicy cherries and blueberries dancing on the palate. (Joe Czerwinski)
SP8787 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 28, 2022
Dusty-edged, with understated cherry and red currant fruit flavors lined liberally with sandalwood and balsam wood notes. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Drink now. 45,000 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

The 2016 Cote Rotie La Landonne is showing a bit more grip than last time I tasted it, with hints of green coffee bean on the nose alongside ripe black cherries and a heap of dried spices. Medium to full-bodied, with ample concentration and plenty of tannin, it should prove to be the longest-lived of Guigal’s 2016s.

JD9595 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/19/2020
The base Condrieu from Guigal always delivers and the 2019 Condrieu is stunning stuff, giving up a beautiful bouquet of ripe nectarines, orange blossom, honeysuckle, and exotic flowers. Just classic Condrieu in every way, it’s medium to full-bodied, with remarkable purity, a fleshy opulence, and a great, clean finish. Readers looking for a textbook Condrieu can’t go wrong with this. It should keep for 7–8 years, although I always prefer these wines in their first 4–5 years of the vintage. (Jeb Dunnuck)

The 2018 Côte Rôtie La Landonne is another wine that’s going to be up at the top of the scale, and all three of these 2018s will be candidates for perfection. Always the biggest, richest wine of the three flagships, it’s inky hued and has a primordial nose of blackberries, cassis, and currants fruits as well as huge ground pepper, cured meats, espresso, and underbrush. As Landonne as Landonne gets, it’s full-bodied, has a dense, powerful mid-palate, masses of tannins, and is going to be just about immortal. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP98+98–100 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 10th Feb 2022
Subtle hints of fresh pea shoots accent characteristic dark notes of roasted meat, espresso and black olives in the full-bodied 2018 Cote Rotie La Landonne. Rich, concentrated and velvety-textured, with ample length and plenty of ripe tannins on the finish, it should benefit from a decade or more of bottle age—once it gets there. It’s a brooding beast of a Cote Rotie that serious collectors will want to have in their cellars.

JD98+98–100 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 12/12/2019
The 2018 Ermitage Ex Voto is stunning, and comes closest in my mind to a mix of the 2015 and 2016. Showing more blue fruits, violets, chocolate, and a liquid rock-like minerality, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, massive amounts of fruit, and building tannins. While the 2017 has more upfront exuberance, I love the purity, depth, and sheer class of the 2018. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP95+95–97 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 10th Feb 2022
Still in barrel, the 2018 Ermitage Ex Voto continues to impress. Brown sugar notes accent cherries and raspberries on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is lush and expansive, delivering waves of pleasure on the mid-palate before ending long and silky.

Juicy and forward, with a mouthfilling core of gently steeped plum and blackberry fruit wrapped in a distinctive mix of singed alder, incense, red tea and sanguine threads. The dusty-edged finish has nice persistence. Drink now through 2032. 600 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
JD92+92–94 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 12/12/2019
I was blown away by the 2018 Saint Joseph, and let’s hope it continues showing this well over the course of its élevage. Rocking levels of crème de cassis, blackberries, crushed violets, and earth all give way to a medium to full-bodied, ripe, sexy effort that ranks with the finest vintages of this release to date. (Jeb Dunnuck)
VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2022
Deep magenta. Dark berry preserves, olive, cracked pepper and a hint of licorice on the fragrant nose. Offers supple, appealingly jammy blackberry, cherry preserve and spicecake flavors that become livelier as the wine opens up. Rounded tannins lend shape to a long, smoky finish that leaves candied licorice and dark fruit liqueur notes behind. This is a distinctly ample rendition of this bottling, and it will stand up to the richest red meat preparations. Aged for two years in used oak barrels. (Josh Raynolds)
JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, October 11, 2019
An attractively fresh and fragrant nose with acacia-like perfume, chamomile and fresh pear aromas. The palate has a super juicy peach core with such fresh, fleshy appeal and a late, toasty glow. Drink this now.
RP91+91–93 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 19th Dec 2019
Purists may cringe, but Guigal’s 2018 Saint-Joseph is undeniably luscious. Hints of pencil shavings and crushed stone appear on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is silky-velvety in texture, loaded with ripe raspberries and cream. For value-seeking consumers, this is one release to watch for down the pike.
