Right in the zone. Beautiful red and dark fruits, with oak now well and truly settled adding compelling sweet spice. Delicate, long lacy tannins. Glides through the palate.

Ripe red fruits, floral, elegant, with a little road tar aroma to let you know where it came from.

Guigal Côte-Rotie? What's not to like with an amazing wine from this with this French Icon. Grilled steak on the barbie on the nose. Seamless, smooth on the palate. Yummmm

2005, A pure pleasure!! complex, rich and elegant. Deep purple color, lovely tempting complex and appealing nose with layers of black current, dry flowers, berries, animalistic characters, wet forest soil, and dark chocolate, full body, deep rich, round yet robust and elegant, with very well integrated tannins and lovely smooth balancing acidity. A lavish long yummy finish. A true star!!! My score 93+, drink 2010-2030.
