Vintage 2019 | Made from 50 y old Carignan (60%), Grenache (30%) and Syrah (10%). 18 months barrel aging. That gives a solid wine with expressive smell (red summerfruit) quite frivolous, and a surprisingly powerful taste. Iron fist in a velvet glove. Really good. Paired it with venison steak. Good starter for the quest to Ventoux @Daniel M — 17 days ago

Very nice CDR. Blackberry and olive and garrigue on the nose. There is a bit of red fruit too like Raspberry. The palate is very well balanced with a good acid drive, a good width, a silky, milky mouthfeel, a good tannins wall with a drying effect and a good finish with that drying effect, a big bright blackberry note and a tiny bit of bitterness. This is a cheap wine with a huge value — a month ago
Dark and inviting, this is another great showing for Guigal’s multi-million bottle basic Côtes du Rhône. The generous nose comes across very southern Rhône-like, with aromas of blackberry, liquorice, lavender and fresh tar, while the palate adds flavours of plum and smoked bacon, with a spicy finish. This really is remarkably good stuff for the money. — 3 days ago
Chateau Pegau (love this producer) Lone Cote du Rhône White is an interesting blend of Clairette (40%), Borboulanc (30%), Grenache Blanc (20%) and Ugni Blanc (10%). Aromas and flavors of white peach and lemon with notes of minerals, white flowers and herbs. Straw gold color, medium body and refreshing. Long and lingering finish. Excellent! — 3 days ago
This organic wine has a very expressive nose with layers of blackberry and black cherry fruit. The palete has smooth and well-integrated tannins with juicy black fruit and a touch of black pepper on the finish. 100% Syrah sourced from organically farmed vineyards and worked using biodynamic methods. — 2 hours ago
I bought this bottle 5 years ago for 16 EUR and I'm not sure about the current pricetag but man what a bargain it was. I had to dig deep into my cellar to pull this one but I'm so glad I did..
This is unlike anything I know from that region.
The nose is blood orange and olive and garrigue. The palate is magnificent. A very strong acid backbone, a very dry mouthfeel with those blood orange notes all along. A huge width and an soft mouthfeel, a power house of a mid palate with carressing tannins which create a drying layer, and eventually a very long, everlasting finish with that blood orange note which turns into blood orange peel in the end with a tiny bitter twist. This is greatness before my eyes (and tastebuds) — 19 days ago
