Its a name you know and trust, but this year Guigal Côtes Du Rhône 2016 is really something special. The 2016 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 with it's Cotes du Rhone. International wine writers are waxing lyrical about this wine:
"From a great, great vintage for the Southern Rhône," Jeb Dunnock, Vinous Media
For my liking, this 2016 represents excellent drinking and for $21.99, there is no other better value Cote Du Rhone on the market. Buy a dozen and enjoy over the next year.
''From a great, great vintage for the Southern Rhône, the 2016 Côtes du Rhône shows an upfront, sunny style as well as Provençal notes of spiced red and black fruits, ground pepper, and garrigue. Drink this medium to full-bodied, ripe, sexy effort over the coming 4-6 years. It will evolve even longer, if you’re so inclined.'' Jeb Dunnuck
''Very brambly, rich and attractive tobacco, red and dark fruit and wild herbs. The palate has richness and an attractive feel with great core flesh and balance. The combination of quality, good value and accessibility here make this quite unique.'' James Suckling
''This contrasts sweet, juicy plum fruit and firm, spicy tannins with some earthy notes and bright cranberry highlights.'' Wine & Spirits Magazine
