Dark and inviting, this is another great showing for Guigal’s multi-million bottle basic Côtes du Rhône. The generous nose comes across very southern Rhône-like, with aromas of blackberry, liquorice, lavender and fresh tar, while the palate adds flavours of plum and smoked bacon, with a spicy finish. This really is remarkably good stuff for the money.

A tasty, go to, great value Rhone. I bought a case that has been serving us well throughout social isolation. Down to last couple!

Jeb Dunnuck refers to this wine as a ‘workhorse cuvée’, a testament to its reliability year in, year out. The 2016 was another successful vintage for every inch of the Rhône, which shows in this straightforward but amiable bottling by E. Guigal.

For $ just great value. Not super complex but balanced and goes really well with food.

Very enjoyable, friendly and elegant wine for any time. Silky texture, slightly thin. Balanced acidity. Tart fresh cherries. An herbal note that becomes licorice-like in the aftertaste. Would buy again without hesitation.

Agree with prior comments re amiable workhorse; wouldn’t confuse it with anything fancy but overall good wine at very accessible price

For less than $20 this is great. It takes a few to open up but the releases the fruit with good structure for a cotes du rhone. One worth stocking up on for everyday.

Juicy plum and red berry aromas and flavors. Bright notes of cola and baking spices. Just a hint of Forrest Floor on the silky finish. Very reasonable for such a mass produced wine.
