E. Guigal Chateaunef-du-Pape 2013 (91 WS)
“This is an old-school version, with bay leaf, cedar and leather notes running in lockstep with dried red currant, cherry and plum fruit flavors. Accents of brick dust, sage and cedar score the finish, yet this is never drying or overly rustic in feel, ending with a mineral edge that lends freshness.”
Guigal produces an intensely concentrated, inviting and complex Châteauneuf-du-Pape that is almost unique to the region today. Their passion for Châteauneuf, the leading appellation of the Southern Rhône, runs as deeply as that for their home sites in the Northern Rhône.
