Cranberry and raisins on the nose. An acidic mineral core which leads to spicy raspberry and plum notes. Baking spice and cedar on the finish. Read more

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

External Reviews for Guigal C-D-R Red 750m
A good imitation of a Châteauneuf-du-Pape, with plenty of fruit, chocolate and cedar flavors and a little pepper seasoning. Well rounded and smooth. Fine to drink now until 1996.
The 2000 Côtes du Rhône includes a whopping amount of Syrah (50%), along with 40% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre. One of the best values in the marketplace, it exhibits a deep ruby/purple color as well as sweet aromas of berry fruit, cassis, earth, licorice, and asphalt. Medium-bodied, with density/intensity and sweet tannin, it is the finest Côtes du Rhône Guigal has fashioned since 1998. Surprisingly, these offerings can last 4-5 years, sometimes even longer.
A blend of 60% Syrah, 35% Grenache, and 5% Mourvèdre gives a jammy, structured wine with dusty, perfumed, warm tannins and welcoming ripe fruits. Like all negociant Côtes du Rhônes, this is ready to drink now, but could age over the next five years.
Medium ruby-red. Black cherry, blueberry, leather and iron on the nose; I was reminded of Saint-Julien, leanish and sweet, with a crushed berry skin character. Not fleshy but lively and fruity. Finishes with firm tannins and nice snap. Great value.
I'll admit upfront that I have a soft spot for this wine - the 1985 version was the fist wine I purchased by the case (I think the whole case set me back about $60). The wine remains a bargain, even though the price tag has roughly doubled. The aromas this year are pretty restrained, but the wine explodes on the palate, giving up impressive flavors of plum, blackberry, earth and pepper, along with hints of anise and tar. The long finish confirms the quality.
Guigal's Côtes-du-Rhône always score high on the value-meter, and this edition of the red - from the great '98 Rhône vintage - is no exception. Nicely structured, filled with cherry, berry and floral flavors and a little leather and spice on the finish, this is a solid everyday wine. Past vintages have easily aged several years, so this is one to buy by the case.
This has nice weight, with fleshy dark plum, raspberry and licorice notes. Shows some toasty grip on the finish, but stays juicy enough. Better than previously reviewed. Drink now.
Wine Advocate Review Rated 88 The 2006 Cotes du Rhone exhibits a dark ruby hue that is slightly less saturated than the 2007. It possesses more pepper, garrigue, earth, and tar characteristics in addition to plenty of red and black fruit notes. Medium-bodied and juicy, it is best consumed over the next 2-3 years.
