Nobles Rives Crozes-Hermitage Syrah

A nice, smooth French Syrah from the Hermitage appellation. Heavy yet smooth with that luscious mature red fruit - tobacco ending with a hint of chocolate that presents as a “fruity” old world French red. Pair with a meal or cheese…Great glass! — 2 years ago

Première Note Syrah

Surprisingly good, and as clearly northern Rhone syrah as any wine can be. It has the strong fruit and the floral complexity, but remains smooth on the palette and well balanced. — 3 years ago

Hermitage Syrah 1988

1988 | Syrah
E. Guigal; Hermitage
Northern Rhone; Tain l'Hermitage, France

Crushed ripe cherry, bacon & fat, crushed Hemlock needles, granite, damp compost, slight barnyard; Ripe black cherry, dried blackberry, black currant, red pepper skin. Tannins persist. Drink 2025-32+

Much brighter on both nose/palate than my other Hermitage experiences. Perhaps I prefer the dried fruit/leather notes showing with more age...
(93-94 points)

Paired to lamb schnitzel, just wonderful together.

You’re an inspiration! I hope to have a cellar as deep as yours someday. My knees for your ‘88’s!

@Severn Goodwin , I used to have 1982/1983 and 1985 Guigal Hermitage (as well as the regular Cote Rotie from those years), all really fine and criminally underrated, IMHO!!

Barossa Valley Estate

Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016

Smooth and elegant with rich berry flavours with a subtle spice. Tasted along side a Cave de Tain Crozes-Hermitage Syrah (New vs Old World). The BVE was more a full bodied shiraz when compared to the Syrah and felt very light. — 4 years ago

Grand Classique Hermitage Syrah

2016 vintage. Dark red. Black fruit, fresh herbs and a tarry hint, still holding back but obvious underlying complexity. Ripe blackberry and cassis, good focus and fresh acidity, refined tannin and an overall sense of harmony. Cave de Tain is probably the best co-operative in France and this is another fine showing. Good value for Hermitage at about 36 euro. — 4 years ago
