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

Very faint nose. Acidic, very difficult to discern any dominant aroma or flavor. I can smell the glass better than the wine almost. Read more

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... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Guigal's Côtes du Rhône is currently my favorite Syrah Rhône blend from the wonderful '98 vintage. For quality wine values the '98 Rhônes rarely disappoint, but Guigal's 50% Syrah/50% Grenache blend goes beyond a simple, ripe, fruity wine and offers, in true Syrah form, depth, clarity, and spice. Full-bodied, well-structured and "smooth" (the most sought-after attribute according to my customers), the color is almost blackberry with Grenache-lightened highlights. Black cherry, cassis and strawberry greet the palate, and then the mouthfilling Syrah seems to take over, finishing with a firm impression of dark, dense fruit and spice. What would I like to eat with this wine? Grilled lamb rack, sweet potato purée and roasted corn chutney.

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.

A blend of 50% Syrah and 50% Grenache, the 2005 Cotes du Rhone is a real head turner. Full-bodied, with a deep ruby/purple color and sweet notes of berry fruit, a hint of road tar, and some pepper, the wine is dense, chewy, ripe, and a surprisingly big mouthful of juicy, velvety-textured wine to drink over the next 3-4 years.

Guigal's skills in selecting and blending large quantities of Côtes-du-Rhône remain unparalleled. The 2006 is full bodied, round in the mouth, full of typical black cherry and plum fruit, and hinting at anise and leather. It should drink well for up to five years.

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.

Ripe in a plummy, pruny, floral mode, with roasted peanut and soy character, this might go well with Asian foods. Medium-bodied, with well-integrated tannins...
