E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône Rouge 2015 (92 W&S)

Given that the Guigals have close relationships with some 80 farmers up and down the Rhône Valley, perhaps it’s not surprising that they make a good Côtes du Rhône red. Still, this one goes far beyond what you’d expect from the general appellation. The scent alone is enticing, warm and inviting in its complex mix of fruit, spice and earth; the flavors weave spice, earth and violet tones through vivid berry flavors. Sandy tannins keep the wine firm and lasting. In fact, you might want to tuck a few bottles into your cellar.”
