    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep red color with complex with dominant black fruit and delicate oak aromas. A pure and intense nose. A powerful attack. Powerful, round and elegant tannins. Originating from a geological formation similar to the famous Bessards slopes in Hermitage, this Saint-Joseph has all the finess of the appellation and the strength of its neighbor across the river.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Ripe for the vintage, with bacon and sweet toast aromas leading the way for supple black cherry and currant fruit. The lush, incense-filled finish gains steam and power. A gorgeous, alluring style. Drink now through 2012. 1,000 cases made.

    Wine Spectator

    Guigal's 2004 St.-Joseph Vignes de l'Hospice possesses a dense purple color in addition to a beautiful bouquet of truffles, graphite, creme de cassis, incense, and spice, gorgeously pure fruit, medium to full body, sensational density, and an uncanny elegance and seamlessness. This stunning effort is a huge success for 2004.

    The Wine Advocate

    Deep ruby. Remarkably powerful cherry, licorice and violet aromas, with a deeper impression of cassis coming up with air. Thick, weighty and sweet; liqueur-like flavors of spicy cherry and blackberry are complicated by suggestions of game and espresso. Remarkably concentrated and sweet on the finish, which displays superb focus and length.
