E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône 2012
|Appellation||Cotes du Rhone|
Wine AdvocateA wine that should be on the market by the time you read this, the 2012 Cotes du Rhone from Guigal is a smokin' value that offers classic southern Rhone notes of peppery herbs, smoked earth and almost chocolatey dark fruits. Medium plus-bodied, concentrated, with both fine tannin and bright acidity, it will deliver the good for at least 5-7 years.
Wine SpectatorThis has a mature edge, with sandalwood and singed alder notes emerging from the core of lightly steeped cherry and raspberry fruit. Light dried anise details drape over the finish. The sandalwood edge lingers longest. Drink now. 60,000 cases imported.
