Reviews For This Wine

($175) Deep ruby. Fresh raspberry and boysenberry aromas complicated by floral and roasted herb accents. Silky in texture, with deep, jammy dark fruit flavors and subtle bracing acidity. Impressively fresh for the vintage, finishing sweet and very long.

A wine I've been lucky enough to have numerous times recently, the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de La Reine des Bois is gorgeous. Quite possibly the wine of the vintage, it shows thrilling levels of blackberry, licorice, toasted bread, and garrigue to go with a full-bodied, massive, yet layered and seamless feel on the palate. There's none of the rusticity or coarse tannin that's common in the vintage, and it possesses beautiful purity, sweetness of fruit and length. Drink it over the coming 2-4 years.

Even though there's loads of fig, mocha and spice up front, this is really holding back, with a dense core of tar, black licorice, espresso and bittersweet cocoa held in check by some serious grip. The minerality is also there, and this should blossom in the cellar. 1,500 cases made.

Killer wine. Velvety with a huge explosion of flavor on the back end. Really really impressive.

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.
