  • Wine Advocate (2010 Vintage) says:

    As for the red wines, first and foremost is Guigal's Cotes du Rhone. I re-tasted the 2010 Cotes du Rhone, which is still in foudre. This cuvee is typically a blend of 50% Syrah and the rest Grenache and perhaps some Mourvedre. Guigal is known throughout the Rhone Valley for paying the highest price for generic Cotes du Rhone, and that in large part explains the quality of this wine year in and year out. It enjoys an extended upbringing in foudre and stainless steel tanks and is always a dense ruby/purple-colored wine with lots of blue and black fruits intermixed with notions of kirsch, licorice, lavender and spice. Supple and surprisingly intense, this delicious effort can age for 4-5 years.

    Nick Stock (2005 Vintage) says:

    It's staggering that this wine is assembled from hundreds of growers and bottled in multiple lots, yet it is delivered with blindingly consistent character. Ripe dark berry fruits, red fruits, cherries and earthy nuances. The palate delivers grainy tannins amid ripe dark plum flavour. Sensational value and undeniable drinkability combined.
