E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône Rouge 2017 (90 DE)
“With fruit sourced from across the Rhône Valley, the consistency, typicity and quality across all three colors is impressive. The 2017 (red) is a touch darker than the 2016, and I like its deep, brambly nature, with plenty of dark plum and blackberry. It has the warming sunshine that the southern Rhône expresses so well. It’s rounded, generous and full-bodied but with a good sense of inner freshness. The acidity is marked enough to match the concentration and alcohol, leading to a richly fruited finish, with gentle chewy tannins.” – M.W.
