Producer Notes

Marcel Guigal - the so-called "pivot" of the Cote-Rotie appellation - is both an owner and negociant, and vinifies over 40% of all Cote-Rotie. His father, Etienne, started out quite modestly in 1946, and over the next decades the company has grown to encompass all that is best in the Rhone Valley.

Starting to taste a bit tired and flabby. Out of the bottle it was quite lively and corpulent, but after 10 minutes in the glass lost some of its drive and began to flatten out. Probably past its prime, but may be drinkable for another year or two (if stored properly).

Medium-bodied. Core of dark berry fruit with flavors of creme de cassis, new saddle leather, cigar box and earth. Slight spiciness on the lingering finish. More of a subtle, restrained style with nice complexity and balance.

Nicely balanced, medium bodied wine with raspberry, cherry and wet stone on the nose. A bit of spices on the palate. Not much of a finish. Liked it for the price.

Ripe and concentrated, this shows plum, currant and cherry fruit intertwined with spice, espresso and black licorice notes. Has a tarry, slightly raisined edge to the finish, but the structure and heady fruit take an encore, boding well for cellaring, though you may always wrestle with the tannins.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
