Plums, spices, and earthiness on the nose. It is a well-balanced wine but will reward those who age it for 3-5 years.
From the oldest continually operating winery in France’s great Rhône region, this estate is owned by the famous Guigal family but is operated as an independent firm. This medium-full bodied red is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and Carignan and offers up dark fruit aromas which are matched by generous fresh fruit on the palate and perfect amount of pepper on the finish.
At this price, you can buy some to enjoy now and a few bottles to cellar as well. Try it with beef tenderloin drizzled with a creamy peppercorn sauce. Tasted March 2012.
Talk about price/value ratio! A hit, a most palpable hit... Buy several, and share generously.
The first bottle I had must have had cork taint and I gave a bad review. The second time around it was quite a good value for the price. Smooth, nothing outstanding, but no flaws.
