Barely old world. Feels very "modern" for a Cote-Rotie, but, then again, this is Big Guigal. Coffee and dense black>red fruit predominate. Medium body and this is light on its feet and certainly not plodding, but I miss the floral notes, the meat and olive, that I typically get from good CR. This is a good wine but very one-dimensional right now. 90 now and doubtful much higher. Appallingly bad QPR considering how much good Syrah is out there
