E. Guigal Châteaunuef du Pape 2017 (91-93 WA) (91-93)
“Darker and plummier than the 2016, Guigal’s 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape is another fine effort from this quality-conscious négociant. It’s full-bodied, rich and velvety in texture, with notes of cola, dark chocolate and prune plums that linger on the silky finish.” – J.C.
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.
