Amazing golden color in the glass!
Nose is just jumping out of the glass, much improved in a year, lavender honey, ripe papaya, pineapple core, hints of oak and fresh sage.
Palate has banana peel, mango, cold butter, lemon pith, orange pith and granite pebbles.
Last bottle 😕. Likely this could hold until 2022+ and continue to improve. — 12 days ago
A beast as expected but so much freshness and length. Nose is gorgeous. Lovely blackberry, granite and hint of funk. Floral and gamey with some herbal aspects as well. Lovely raspberry. So fresh and pure. Deep and layered. Palate is rich and ripe with serious structure and freshness. Big tannins and a bit backwards now but it’s all there and has insane length and freshness. — 3 days ago

Founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal in the ancient village of Ampuis, home of the wines of the Côte-Rôtie. One-third of this bottling sees new oak, while the rest goes into stainless steel. Pale lemon color with stone fruits, floral and sweet spice aromas. On the palate pronounced flavors of ripe apple, apricot, peach, honeysuckle and white pepper. Full body with vivid acidity, medium+ finish ending with toasty smoke notes. — 19 days ago
Ok. This is my personal favorite wine, no matter the vintage, varietal or the dollar value. If i was granted one wine forever, this is it. As a Rhône warrior it exceeds expectations, and drinks like an amazing burgundy. Still young, no nose upon opening. An hour later this massive floral nose permeates though the rum of the glass. Tannins not fully integrated yet with a pleasant acidity. Time is beyond its friend. Earth tones are present along with expresso and tobacco. Red fruit front and center with a long finish. Wish this could be everyday Allday. — 6 days ago
Sick as always. Huge black fruit and very floral. Huge granite, a raspberry pastille element, mint, spice and huge spice. Wow. Insanely deep and complex nose that is much more layered and complex than the Mazel. Palate is super complex and so refined. Amazing purity and depth. Terrific energy and is so juicy. Really impressive. Wow is this elegant. Insane value. — 9 days ago
