Ermitage Ex-Voto represents the fulfillment of a longtime dream of Guigal’s to own his own vineyard land on the hill of Hermitage. Through the purchase of the de Vallouit and J. L. Grippat domaines in 2000, Guigal acquired four vineyard parcels on this legendary site. The 2001 vintage was the first release of this estate-bottled Hermitage red and white.
The white comes from two parcels, les Murets (90%) and L’Hermite (10%). A blend of 90% Marsanne and 10% Roussanne, the wine spends approximately 18 months in new oak casks and is bottled without fining or filtration. These cuvées will be produced only in exceptional vintages.
