    Beautiful and lush. The floral, vanilla and blueberry flavors are distinctive and concentrated; if the oak is dominant now, the fruit is ripe and lively. --Guigal Cote-Rotie vertical. 300 cases made.

    I thought this was a Guigal LaLa but to my shame didn't recognise it, despite drinking it just three nights previously! 'It's the context,' Peter Gago said, consolingly and certainly this wine seemed so much lighter when served alongside the heft of a range of Granges than it did when served with no more preamble than Krug 1990 - and a Jaboulet Les Jamelles 1971 C“te R“tie afterwards.Essence of Syrah on the nose. Lively fresh and dry (as opposed to sweet) - much racier and subtler than I was expecting from having read other tasting notes on this wine. The tannins are already nicely resolved. High toned minerals - dry and refreshing - very clean and brisk.

    This is an amazing wine but definitely better shared over dinner with several people. It must also be opened for a good hour before drinking and possibly decanted to moderate the medicinal and musty tones. A heavy meat dish would be best. Definitely not a wine for sipping with cheese. Should be shared with others who like Cote Rotie.

    Very rich, smooth and with great length. Slight tones of spice box -- clove and a hint of pepper -- but nothing overdon. Fantastic.

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.
