Young and alive! Lots of herbs, some red currant, cinnamon stuff developing, plenty of acid. #agemore #coterotie #northernrhonewines #ampuis #guigal — 9 months ago

Château d'Ampuis Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2003

The nose was sweet and showed tremendous depth and concentration of ripe fruit. New oak is present but not overwhelming. The wine is complex but lacking a firm structure. Alcohol was not overwhelming. The wine is tight and will be very special with time and a loss of baby fat. #coterotie #guigal #northernrhone #rhonevalley #syrah #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago

Brune et Blonde de Guigal Côte-Rotie Syrah 2010

9.0

Beautiful and complex #coterotie nose with some new oak aromas. Big and primary on the palate with slightly less than elegant tannins. Needs a few years but this is absolutely delicious. #guigal #rhone — 4 years ago

This 2015 vintage #condrieu was better than others I’ve tasted from #guigal I’d recommend it highly. It has so much typicity for what I consider the grape #viognier — 10 months ago

Côtes du Rhône White Rhone Blend 2013

#EGuigal 2013 #CotesduRhoneBlanc
Different from what I am used to, but then perhaps I really need to taste a lot more
#Viognier I guess this one may take some time to grow on me.
Floral, fresh pear, kiwi, and honeysuckle.

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2009

A 2009 Côtes du Rhône? For 13 bucks? Ok - twist my arm, RiteAid. E. Guigal suggests an eight year max on this one, and yep, still drinking nicely. The blend is a classic GSM, (52% Grenache, 45% Syrah, and 3% Mourvèdre), grown in the Rhône region of France - a hotbed of viticulture since the 1600s. Guigal has been cultivating wine inthe region since ~1940s producing both easily approachable table wine, (like the monsieur pictured here), and high end expensive bottles of pure delicious sunshine. Paired this with a yellow curry and for the price point, it was well worth it. Not sure there are many 2009s still out there - but for the money, you could do a lot worse. ~$13 | #guigal #côtesdurhône #gsm

On the eyes: Ruby with orange tinted rim, med concentration, bright, med stain, med tears, no gas/floc.

On the nose: top notes of violet move through stewed blackberries, a touch of spice and licorice ending in a gravelly earthiness, med alcohol.

On the tongue: med+ acid, med tannin, med+ alcohol, med+ body, mellowed out and round on the palette. Overripe black plum, bing cherry, a touch of spice, and nice mineralty. Not overly fussy, drinks easily. The geezer should breathe a bit before you go, though.

Château d'Ampuis Côte-Rôtie Syrah 1996

What a stunner. Drinking perfect right now at 20 years. Earthy and wild but the fruit still definitely pleasant. A real treat. #coterotieftw #côterôtie #animale #guigal #ampuis — 3 years ago

Château d'Ampuis Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2011

Exceptional, expressive; aromatic and just so poised; holding back its full potential with residual oak bits; more behind the wine than meets the eye; #syrah #coterotie #guigal #2011 ; not big in texture for a warm region shiraz; more the elegant road, pushed that way by long oak time; tannic; 13.5%; AUD 200; long juicy mix of oak spice and shiraz blueberry; so fab #uncorkedandcultivated #wineandfoodtours #France2017 to visit; also there #2016. — 4 years ago
