Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | 90(+?)

($38) Ruby-red, less saturated than the Hermitage. Cool aromas of black fruits, violet face powder, pepper and tar. Tightly wound on the palate, with pepper and herbal notes currently dominating the wine's dark berry component. But opened nicely with air to show good density and richness and sappy precision of flavor. Quite aromatic and bright in the mouth. Finishes with fine, peppery tannins and excellent persistence. Classic Cote-Rotie.

Deep and quite healthy ruby. Round and seductive with lots of ripe fruit – quite different from most other regular Côte Rôties. Some tarriness but still the delicacy of the appellation. I’m impressed by this! A complete wine that seems obviously from a successful vintage. Really fruity core without any sacrifice of typicity.

About This Producer

Marcel Guigal - the so-called "pivot" of the Cote-Rotie appellation - is both an owner and negociant, and vinifies over 40% of all Cote-Rotie. His father, Etienne, started out quite modestly in 1946, and over the next decades the company has grown to encompass all that is best in the Rhone Valley. Not only known for the massive hits in Hermitage and Cote-Rotie, the Guigal name is synonymous with quality all along the scale, from the humble Cotes-du-Rhone to the Big Three - La Landonne, La Mouline and La Turque.
