Hi Folks, its a name you know and trust, but this year Guigal Côtes Du Rhône 2015 is really something special. The 2015 vintage is one of the greatest in Rhone and wines from top to bottom are generally outstanding. Guigal has really hit the jackpot this year. Not only did Jancis Robinson write "This will be a huge hit" but other international wine writers are also singing about this wine:
"The 2015 Cotes du Rhone marks a terrific return to form for this cuvée."Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate Magazine
"it’s a beautiful Côtes du Rhône that will deliver the goods" Jeb Dunnuck, Vinous Media
For my liking, this 2015 represents excellent drinking and for $21.99, there is no other better value Cotes du Rhone on the market. Buy a dozen and enjoy over the next year!
''The 2015 Cotes du Rhone marks a terrific return to form for this cuvée. It’s intense and peppery, with concentrated black cherry fruit, a medium to full-bodied palate and a long finish.'' JOE CZERWINSKI
The 2015 Côtes du Rhône checks in as a final blend of 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and the rest Mourvèdre. It offers a juicy, Syrah-driven bouquet of ripe blackberry fruits, smoked meats, pepper, and hints of underbrush as well as a rich, medium to full-bodied, polished style on the palate. It has ripe tannin, plenty of mid-palate depth... it’s a beautiful Côtes du Rhône that will deliver the goods. JEB DUNNUCK
Very flashy, glossy Syrah on the nose. Bit of treacle but great richness too. Great gloss and balance. Racy. Energetic. This doesn’t taste very like southern Rhône! They specialise in buying lots which others don’t want. They seek slow-maturing well-structured Syrahs. This will be a huge hit! JANCIS ROBINSON
