2009Guigal Cotes du Rhone Rouge

Red Blend-France-Rh ne

The Cotes du Rhone Rouge sets the standard for the appellation. Since the 1998 vintage, the wine is now based on Syrah (50-60%), with about 30-40% Grenache and the balance in Mourvedre and other varieties. The wine is exceptionally structured, rich, and complex. Unlike most producers in the appellation Guigal ages his Cotes du Rhone Rouge for a full two years before release.

This tank-aged deep ruby/purple-colored concentrated fleshy medium to full-bodied supple offering reveals plenty of pepper kirsch and black currant fruit intermixed with a notion of flowers. It is meant to be consumed during its first 2-3 years of life although I have tasted 10-year-old bottles that are still holding together.
