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.
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.
Reflective of Guigal's orgins in the norhtern Rhône, this wine, while containing plenty of Grenache, is buttressed by increasing quantities of Syrah and Mourvedre. The 1996 Côtes du Rhone red is a softer, fruitier wine with less spice and muscle, reflecting the fact that this is a lighter vintage in the Rhône Valley. These wines are aged in both foudre and tank, and then blended prior to bottling.
Bright straw cast. Moderately full-bodied. Full acidity. Highly extracted. Bread dough, minerals. Soft aromas, with a rounded and firm mouthfeel. this has a sound palate presence, though flavors are neutral enough to allow versatility.
The deep ruby/purple-colored 1998 Côtes du Rhône rouge, a blend of 50% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 20% miscellaneous varietals, offers a moderately intense bouquet of cassis, licorice and flowers. An amazing value, with moderate tannin, excellent concentration, and the potential to improve for several years and last 6-8, this is a wine to purchase by the case.
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.
