Guigal Cotes du Rhone 2020


Super classy Cotes du Rhone from the Rhone 'Royal Family'.

A very, very good French red that should be on everyone's radar.

"Deep dark red and shiny dress. Nose of black fruits marked by notes of spices. Full- bodied wine, full and racy. Tannins rounded, very coated but present in the mouth. This wine is distinguished by its size, heat and aromatic intensity. Complete wine, good persistence. Elegance and finesse due to a nice balance between tannins and fruits."  Winery notes

 90/100, Stuart Pigott
"An impressive Cotes-du-Rhone with stacks of blackberry and black raspberry fruit wrapped around a core of moderately dry tannins on the bold palate. Long self-confidently dry finish. A cuvee of 50% syrah, 45% grenache and 5% mourvedre. Drink now."

90/100 Decanter
"Modern, lifted and a bit heady, but attractive and evocative. Black cherry inkiness segues into a dense palate where all the fruit is crammed into a structured body with drying tannins. Herbs and stones hemmed in by a firm grip. A good all rounder." Drink 2024 - 2030
