From the excellent 2016 Rhone vintage. Fuller than you usually expect from a Guigal CdR. Blackberry from the Syrah and raspberry from the Grenache with savoury overtones. So consistent for the 100’s of thousands of bottles that they make. A regular purchase annually for me.

A blend of 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache & 10% Mourvèdre with pleasing aromas of berries and spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry and cherry with smoke and savory spice. Long finish, spicy tannins ending with earthy herbs. Great value, tasting well now.

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.
