Nice surprise!! Have swerved this CDR in the past having never heard glowing reviews. But this half was the only 37.5 available when I needed a wine last night, so thought it worth a try. Brilliant QPR on this entry level wine from E. Guigal, a blend of predominantly Syrah with a dose of Grenache & Mourvèdre. Dark, enticing, very youthful from the excellent 2015 vintage. I shall buy more and keep a few for years to come - this should age reasonably well in the mid-term. — 9 days ago
The debut of the very rare Les Peyrouses white blend. Viognier/Marsanne/Rousanne. Just gorgeous nose. Flint, hay, citrus rind, herbal, floral, so aromatic. Killer. Exotic citrus fruit like guava and mango as well. But substantial and engagingly mineral as well. So serious. Palate is ripe and generous, with supreme elegance. Juicy and mineral with insane freshness and acidity. Clean and has that crazy N. Rhone White minerality. Amazingly dry and mineral on the finish. This seems like it can age for 15 years. Stunning. Almost tannic. Love this style of white. — 13 hours ago
Limpid violet. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes black raspberry and cherry preserves, incense, exotic spices and smoky minerals. Sweet, seamless and energetic on the palate, showing impressive depth as well as sharp delineation to its intense red and dark berry, spicecake and lavender pastille flavors. Finishes smooth, sappy and extremely long, with repeating florality and deftly interwoven tannins that add framework and gentle closing grip. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, February 2020)

I love this wine and usually drink it the year of release or soon after. I’ve been drinking the 2016 in 2019. But I had left a 2014 in the cellar for a couple of years as an experiment. Tannins have faded too much and it is a bit too soft. They are still there but it seems more fruit forward, a bit jammy. I like a bit more tannic grip. Still has great complexity in the fruit profile, though, and spices and herbs. — 6 days ago
