Elegant with a lustry finesse that speaks to the specific terroir of northern Rhône. Black plum, and currant with fig and hints of tobacco and spice. Well balanced with taut acidity. — 11 days ago
The Guigal family owns some of the best vineyards in the Rhône Valley and makes some of the best wines. This wine is an excellent introductory wine for the Rhône Valley. This wine is an excellent value for the region considering it is from one of the world’s most notable producers. Deep dark red, aromatic spices and dark fruit. Do Not turn away from this wine! — 6 days ago
Dark cherry, and plum and slight earthy note. Soft tannins and higher acidity. Great — 7 days ago
I’m new to the terroir of Ventoux but the 2016 Saint Jean de Barroux ‘La Source’ certainly speaks to that of the Southern Rhône and could hold a candle to many a Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
Young and exuberant, with lifted aromas of fresh blueberry, blackberry, plum, cherry compote, anise, fresh savoury herbs
The palate is bold, with only mild tannins and flavours of Turkish delight and chocolate to go with the fruit.
Impressed by this - tasted blind, I would’ve probably considered a high quality Cotes du Rhône. — 5 days ago
