Bright purple. A highly fragrant bouquet evokes red fruit liqueur, violet, incense and smoky bacon, with a zesty mineral overtone. Taut and sharply focused on entry, then fleshier in the mid-palate, offering pliant raspberry, cherry and floral pastille flavors and a tangy hint of blood orange. Finishes spicy and precise, with slow-building tannins and excellent clarity and cut. This was only recently bottled and while it's pretty tight right now it looks very promising.

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.
