Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone 2010 HALF BOTTLE Product #27994 (In Stock)
Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone 2010 HALF BOTTLE Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone 2010 HALF BOTTLE

Half Bottle!  Another great release from one of the Rhone's most important estates.

"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."Wine Advocate 89 points

"Offers a roasted feel, with dark bramble, plum and tobacco notes accented by hints of pastis and apple wood, leading to a ganache- and charcoal-infused finish. Distinctive in feel, revealing a prominent yet integrated woodsy element."Wine Spectator 89 points

Guigal Crozes Hermitage Rouge 2010 Product #28852 (In Stock)
Guigal Crozes Hermitage Rouge 2010 Guigal Crozes Hermitage Rouge 2010

Always an excellent value in traditionally-styled Northern Rhone Syrah, this really shines in the great 2010 vintage. Try it with lamb!

"Inky ruby. Lively red fruit, incense and floral qualities on the perfumed nose. Pliant black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show good depth and energy, with a subtle violet pastille nuance emerging with air. Smoky Indian spices build on the long, focused finish, which is framed by gentle, slow-building tannins. Distinctly different than the denser, darker 2009 bottling of this wine, which I was able to retaste with Philippe. That wine has picked up a smoky, gamey quality over the last year, which adds complexity to its sappy dark fruit flavors; I've seen it being offered for around $20 lately, which makes it an outstanding value."International Wine Cellar 91 points

"A grippy, old-school style, with lots of licorice root and roasted alder weaving around steeped plum and macerated black currant fruit. The grippy but lively acidity is well-buried. Very solid. Drink now through 2016. 25,000 cases made."Wine Spectator 91 points

Guigal Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2007 Product #28791 (In Stock)
Guigal Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2007 Guigal Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2007

Guigal always releases this late, and the extra time had done nothing but good!  A big wine for big food.

"Vibrant red and dark berry scents are complemented by notes of garrigue, woodsmoke and dark chocolate. Rich and expansive but energetic as well, offering sweet blackberry and cherry compote flavors and a touch of licorice. Shows the heft of the vintage but comes off as lively on the long, spicy, smoky finish."International Wine Cellar 92 points

"One of the finest Chateauneufs made by Guigal, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape is a blend of 85% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvedre. Full-bodied with lots of kirsch, blackberry, raspberry, camphor and licorice, this is a classic example of both Chateauneuf du Pape and Provencal viticulture. It is aged in both tank and foudre for 3-4 years prior to being released. Drink it over the next 20 years. It is amazing that Guigal can consistently produce a wine of this majesty."Wine Advocate 93 points

Guigal Cote Rotie Brune Et Blonde 2010 Product #28792 (In Stock)
Guigal Cote Rotie Brune Et Blonde 2010 Guigal Cote Rotie Brune Et Blonde 2010

A stunner that, as Wine Advocate says, "this medium-bodied, juicy, elegant and seamless Cote Rotie can be consumed anytime over the coming decade."

"The 2010 Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde is a beauty that possesses a floral, fresh and perfumed personality. Giving up plenty of raspberry-styled fruit, toast, licorice and loads of rose petal and floral-like qualities, this medium-bodied, juicy, elegant and seamless Cote Rotie can be consumed anytime over the coming decade."Wine Advocate 93 points

"Shows energy and range, with mouthwatering, briary tannins carrying the core of blackberry and plum paste notes. Fruitcake, pastis and alder details fill in the background. The sneakily long finish presents heft and cut."Wine Spectator 94 points
