The 1976 Guigal Hermitage is really a superb example of the vintage and has kept better than the 1983. The lovely old Hermitage nose wafts from the glass in a complex blend of cassis, dark berries, roasted game, pepper, hot stones and new leather. On the palate the wine is fullish, deep and beautifully complex, with a fine core, impressive delineation, melting tannins and excellent length and grip on the perfectly balanced and still quite vibrant finish. This has certainly been fully mature for many, many years, but it shows more vigor than the 1983 today and will outlive that wine by at least a few years. It is really a lovely, mellowed example of mature Hermitage. (Drink between 2011-2030) (7/2013)

.Robert Parker

The 1976 red Hermitage from Guigal is a rich, very full-bodied, still tannic wine that will continue to repay keeping for another 5-7 years." (Wines of the Rhone, 3/2010)
