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.

Unfortunately, this was the third bottle of the night and I failed to take notes. I will say that this was a delicious wine with wonderful structure. We did not finish the bottle that evening and it tasted very nice the next evening. For the price, this is a fine bottle.

Drank this over two nights. First night decanted for about two hours, displayed nice dark fruit bouquet. Wine was tight so I put it back in the bottle. On second night it opened up with decent fruit but had some grippy tannins that kept it from really shining. Still, excellent QPR.

Ruby red. Compact, spicy nose. Sweet ripe tannins with rich, warming plummy fruits, black pepper spice and bitter chocolate on the finish.

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.
