Guigal’s Côtes du Rhône rouge is considered a benchmark for the appellation. The Guigals select and blend cuvées from over 40 top growers, and their talent lies in the rigorous and exhaustive tasting they carry out to make the final blend. Ultimately they will select only 1% of all wines they taste for their Côtes du Rhône. Since the 1998 vintage this wine has been based on Syrah, a Northern Rhône approach to a wine that is almost always Grenache-based. Since they produce some of the most important Syrah-based wines in the northern Rhône, their method is quite natural. This focus on Syrah also produces wines of greater aromatic intensity and structure, though is much more costly to produce. Complex and age-worthy, Guigal’s Côtes du Rhône Rouge is an extraordinary value.

Not yet bottled, the 2017 Côtes du Rhône is cut from the same cloth as the 2016 yet has a touch more exuberance and sunny character. Kirsch, peppery herbs, and earthy notes emerge from this medium to full-bodied, sweetly fruited effort that’s already a joy to drink. 90-92

The Guigals predict volumes of only 3.5 million bottles for the 2017 Cotes du Rhone, as good wine was harder to source than in 2016. It's still bright and primary, with cherry fruit seeming a bit one-dimensional at this stage, although there's a welcome hint of almond paste on the crisp finish. 89-91

Saturated ruby. Ripe black raspberry and cherry aromas are complicated by suggestions of cracked pepper, allspice and pungent flowers. Supple, appealingly sweet red and blue fruit preserve flavors 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.

Baked apple, cardamom and smoke introduce this fullbodied, lusciously waxen white. It’s a rippling, textural wine that finishes on an elegantly salty tang. Enjoy now–2023.
