Most disappointing wine that I can rememeber. Not offensively bad, but has minimal flavor which disappears immediately. Like drinking cherry vitamin water.

Deep and dark red. Shiny. Fresh fruits with red berries and spices. ll, round and racy. Rounded and smooth tannins. A full-bodied, rich and intensely aromatic wine. Full with a long finish and plenty of elegance and finesse due to the well balanced tannins and fruit.

Dunkle, kräftige Farbe mit blassen Reflexen. Duft von Gewürzen, schwarzen Beeren und delikaten Holzaromen. Die Nase ist dicht, intensiv und ausdrucksvoll. Rassiger, taninreicher Wein Zwetschgenaromen, Brombeeren und Vanille, im Gaumen gut strukturiert, dicht und kräftig. Sehr guter Lagerwein! Ausbau während 38 Monaten in neuen Eichenfässern.

This famous bottling of Côte-Rôtie takes its name from a majestic Roman fort along the banks of the Rhône that was purchased by the Guigal family in 1995. Thousands of years ago, Romans discovered that the "roasted slope," with its southern exposure and excellent drainage, was perfect for the cultivation of Syrah.

Tiefrote, dunkle Farbe. Duft von Gewürzen, Konfitüre und kleinen, reifen, roten Früchten. Kräftier, komplexer Wein mit runden Tanninen, füllig, mild, mit Aromen von reifen Zwetschgen und roten Steinfrüchten.

Parker calls it a "real head turner". 50% Syrah and 50% Grenache. Full-bodied, dense, chewy, ripe with a deep purple color and sweet notes of berry fruit with a touch of pepper. A juicy, velvety mouthful.


Winemaker's Notes:

"The Rhone Valley’s most successful producer continues to ratchet up the level of quality of his Cotes du Rhone cuvees, of which he produces hundreds of thousands of cases. Both Marcel Guigal and his son Philippe realize how important quality is and demonstrate that commitment in these lower level wines. They just get better and better. Guigal’s red Cotes du Rhones have become a staple of much everyday drinking, and I have enjoyed them when flying business class on United Airlines as well. A strong effort, the deeply-hued, seductive 2004 Cotes du Rhone (primarily Syrah with some Grenache included in the blend) displays loads of berry fruit, not a great deal of complexity, but beautiful texture, softness, and silkiness. Guigal’s master blends are always consistent and uniform despite different bottling dates. Most of these wines drink well for 3-4 years." Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 169 Feb 2007.
