($40) Deep red. Very ripe nose offers intense red berry aromas and distinctly meaty, musky garrigue accents. Very rich and deep, with powerful, jammy raspberry and cherry flavors, dusty tannins and a long, chocolatey finish. Picks up some exotic spice notes on the back, which add vivacity to this chewy, somewhat brooding animal.

Not a lot of fruit and way too much barnyard. May have been a bad bottle. Having a hard time getting excited about opening the other bottle, though.

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.
