Guigal CdR 2010

Off Topic: E Guigal Côtes du Rhone 2010 – $$

This Rhone red is fast becoming a favourite of mine, ever since L and I attending a Rhone cellaring tasting late last year. I bought a few for the cellar then, but Regional Wines are still selling it at less than a twenty a bottle…

Dark carmine colour. 14%. Floral nose, precision; tannic, rich, good extract and intensity, purity and expression. Epitomises the idea of CdR. Pure and wine-y, with a touch of oak. Long finish.
