The label shows this wine as “Ermitage Ex Voto”.  It’s still the Hermitage appellation. Producers are able to choose whether to use the ‘H’. Philippe Guigal explained “there is no rule regarding the use of an “H” or not in Hermitage but it is generally admitted that if the producer vinifies two Hermitages, his normal cuvée will come with the H (the classical way) and his tête de cuvée [top wine of that appellation] will come without the H (the historical way) but once again there is no real rule about it.”

 

You're welcome.
