  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    Bright ruby-red, darker than the Gigondas. Riper, more liqueur-like nose complicated by a peppery nuance. Very ripe and fat in the mouth but tightly wrapped and less showy today than the Gigondas. Best today on the tangy finish, which offers an unusual combination of sheer ripeness and grip.

    Delicious. Full-bodied yet quite racy, with black fruit singing along. Warm at midpalate and plummy, showing blackberry, spice and mocha character and supple tannins. Tempting now. 10,830 cases made.

    Very good is the 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape. Remarkably, there are 200,000 bottles of the 1998. It is full-bodied, dense, rich, and chewy, with an opulent texture as well as a classic nose of Provencal herbs mixed with kirsch liqueur, pepper, and balsam. Drink it over the next fifteen years.

    Medium ruby red color with a few thick clear slow moving legs. A reticent nose of game, flowers, herbs, and red fruits. High acidity coupled with light to moderate tannins. Plum and mint predominate the palate. Quite a nice lengthy finish.

    We drank this with broiled pork chops on 2/2/08. It was a brownish red color with medium light legs. The expressive bouquet jumped out at me as soon as I opened the bottle and decanted. It had very pleasant cherry, coloa, floral and herbal aromas. The palate was very dry and not bitter at all. The tannins were round and well integrated. The predominate flavor was of tart cherry with just a hint of vanilla. It had a very long sour finish.

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.
