As always, a tremendous Rhone value. "Spice- and smoke-accented cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by suggestions of candied violet and cracked pepper. Spicy, energetic and sharply focused on the palate, offering concentrated bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors that open up slowly with air. Smooth tannins and excellent closing thrust and persistence." Vinous 91/WA 90

Deadset unreal value. Dark fruits, black tea, pepper and herbal. Good front and mid palate weight, lacks drive and focus. But all in balance and drinks a treat

Totally predictable but delicious - beautiful balance - love the dark fruits and sourness

Less peaceful than the main act but still pretty easy drinking.

Never disappoints. Smoky, meaty aromas with a pleasing mouthfeel. Inexpensive and gets the job done.

Dark fruit, a bit of pepper on the finish. Fairly lean for a Rhone, but great with grilled sausage. I'd suggest drinking it a bit younger.

Seriously, Guigal should be the model for all large-scale winemaking! Aromatically charges at you and nothing out of place. Punches way above it's price. Such good value.
