In the mouth, round tannins with powerful complexity. A rich unctuous wine with notes of mature plums, hazelnuts and red fruits. A very rich wine full of harmony and balance.

Nose is all about the barn yard. There's a little dookie in the mix. The texture is lush but a bit like rare meat. There is almost a blood component to it. There is a presence of rasberry on the fruit side. This is not a wine that fruit bombers are going to dig. I like the style. If there is one complaint it is that the wine is a little dis-jointed and all over the place. I think it might settle down in the bottle over the next couple...
Woodsy. Smooth drinking. Nice tannins, but not too sour in the mouth. Rasberry-ish
Silky smooth medium body red with nice medium length finish with nice spice!
Franchement bien fait. Un Top annee après annee.
went well with chinese food. Peking style duck. general tso's chicken....something sweet to cut thru the sweetness. I paid $19.99 on wine.com.....way too much for this wine that is $10 elsewhere.
Nice color, Fruit and spice, good nose.

95 points from Wine & Spirits and listed in their Top 100 for 2007! "Guigal is best known for its legendary CÔte-RÔtie and Hermitage, but the 2003 ChÂteauneuf-du-Pape fully deserves a place alongside its more renowned
Guigal is best know for its legendary Cote-Rotie and Hermitage, but the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape fully deserves a place alongside its more renowned siblings, with elegant refinement and subtle, soil-driven intensity. Its dark, pungent flavors of black cherry and spiced plum are richly prominent, constantly referring back to a deeply gripping minerality that tethers the complex aromas of fruit, spice, fresh meat and black tea. It feels like a sphere, seemless and harmonious, staining the palate with its long, fragrant length.
Marcel Guigal has produced another superb Chateauneuf Du Pape in 2001. Its medium plum/ruby color is accompanied by a lovely bouquetof kirsch liqueur, ground pepper, Provencal herbs, and balsam wood. Full-bodied and lightly tannic, with loads of fruit and glycerin as well as a sumptuous finish, it is similar to the top-flight seductive 2000. Drink it over the next 10ndash;12 years.
Very ripe and spicy, this grew soft but concentrated in the warm vintage of 2001. Itrsquo;s ready to drink, but needs air to coax its full flavor, from the earthy bass notes to its floral airs.
The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape is a must buy. It boasts a deep plum/ruby color as well as a rich bouquet of blackberries, kirsch, spice box, pepper, grilled herbs, and meat juices. With supple tannins, full body, and beautiful texture and depth, it should drink nicely for 10ndash;15 years.
Deep red. Complex aromas of dried red berries, garrigue, Asian spices and rose. Spicy red fruit flavors are firmed by fine-grained tannins and complemented by notes of succulent herbs and smoky spices. Well-structured but not hard, finishing with very good clarity, sappiness and lingering florality.
Deep red. Very ripe nose offers intense red berry aromas and distinctly meaty, musky garrigue accents. Very rich and deep, with powerful, jammy raspberry and cherry flavors, dusty tannins and a long, chocolatey finish. Picks up some exotic spice notes on the back, which add vivacity to this chewy, somewhat brooding animal.
