2017 E. Guigal Côtes-du-Rhône

SKU #1512567 89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Still bright and primary, with cherry fruit seeming a bit one-dimensional at this stage, although there's a welcome hint of almond paste on the crisp finish. Tasting at Guigal is always one of the highlights of my Northern Rhône trip. (JC) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

90 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Considering Guigal makes about 4m bottles of Côtes du Rhône a year, with fruit sourced from across the Rhône Valley, the consistency, typicity and quality across all three colours is impressive. The red is generally released after a few years in bottle. The 2017 is a touch darker than the 2016, and I like its deep, brambly nature, with plenty of dark plum and blackberry. It has the warming sunshine that the southern Rhône expresses so well. It’s rounded, generous and full-bodied but with a good sense of inner freshness. The acidity is marked enough to match the concentration and alcohol, leading to a richly fruited finish, with gentle chewy tannins. (MW) Inner quote mark (4/2021)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Saturated ruby. Ripe black raspberry and cherry aromas are complicated by suggestions of cracked pepper, allspice and pungent flowers. Supple, appealingly sweet red and blue fruit preserve flavors gain energy with air, and a bright mineral element adds back-end lift. Supple tannins add shape to a persistent, floral-accented finish, which leaves cherry and spice notes behind. (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Hints of toast and charred hazelnut accent zingy blackberry and raspberry flavors in this full-bodied, brightly balanced Côtes du Rhône. A blend of 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre matured 18 months in oak foudres, it's a consistently well-made, elegant red that balances plump black-fruit flavors against a backbone of brisk acidity and firm but velveteen tannins. (AI) Inner quote mark (10/2021)
