''Always a solid value as well as an impeccably made wine. Pretty notes of black cherries and crunchy raspberry fruits intermixed with spice. It displays the charming, Provençal medium-bodied style of the vintage nicely.'' Jeb Dunnuck
Hi Folks, There must be something in the water or perhaps more accurately the vines as Guigal regarded as the most illustrious winery in all of the Rhone Valley have just released another crowd pleasing Cotes du Rhone Rouge! Guigal is a monumental estate in the Rhone - their wines are spectacular and indeed they can fetch over $700 a bottle! In great years such as the recently released 2017 there is extraordinary value to be found and given the track record of these guys this is one red not to be missed!
Today is your chance to buy an emblematic Red from one of the World's most prestigious estates. You struggle to see their competitor's making Cotes du Rhone Reds for less than $30 and dare I say many of those more expensive offerings won't come close to the quality to be found here. Grab a few bottles, while you still can!
''Always a solid value as well as an impeccably well made wine, the 2017 offers a medium ruby colour as well as pretty notes of black cherries and crunchy raspberry fruits intermixed with lots of peppery garrigue and spice. It displays the charming, Provençal, medium-bodied style of the vintage nicely and is ideal for enjoying over the coming 3-4 years.'' Jeb Dunnuck
''Supple, appealingly sweet red and blue fruit preserve flavours gain energy with air, and a bright mineral element adds back-end lift. Supple tannins add shape to a persistent, floral-accented finish, which leaves cherry and spice notes behind." Vinous Media
''The 2017's display deep-pitched dark fruit character, palate-coating textures, distinct weight and, in many cases, powerful tannins. These are clearly opulent wines that will satisfy oenophiles.'' Josh Raynolds
''A succession of superb vintages from 2015 to 2017 has produced some of the best red wines in recent decades throughout the southern Rhône. For consumers, it’s simply an unmissable opportunity to drink up. Reds from the 2017 vintage are just hitting the market, but are already exhibiting a fantastic mix of concentration and elegance.'' Anna Iijima, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
