E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône Rosé 2017 (90 JD)
“There are two rosés, a slightly lighter styled Côtes du Rhône rosé and a richer Tavel. The 2017 Côtes du Rhône Rosé offers pretty, fresh notes of cherries and strawberries, and is medium-bodied, fresh and crisp. This cuvée has always leaned toward the richer end of the spectrum, but the 2017 is certainly in a fresher, more Provençal style.”
Côtes du Rhône
The Guigal family has made serious rosé wines since the 1940s, and their Côtes du Rhône Rosé, like all their Côtes du Rhône wines, is humble in name only. The wine bursts with irresistible fresh red fruits and yet is also long and satisfying. Because of its quality and body, it's a rosé that you can bring to the table, and do so all year long. It is a rosé that offers both refreshment and pleasure.
