  • Clear garnet color. Tight nose – nothing at chest or chin level. Nose in the glass reveals those French notes one either loves or hates, rubber and such. Sweet on the tongue. Full of fruit (dried cherries), spice (pepper), with just a little tannin on the finish. Delicious.

  • Pour terminer en beauté, avec un très beau plateau de fromage (digne de ce nom), rien de moins que le WOTW (Wine of the Year) #1 de Wine Spectator en 2002:
    Belle matière, viande et poivre avec une belle minéralité, superbe en ce moment, une bien belle bouteille de Bordeaux70, thanks buddy!
    …et dire que ce vin a été payé une cinquantaine de $ dans le temps.

  • Some Grilling with the Toronto Cru (Toronto, ON): Here is another wine I had low expectations for. I've found so many wines in the Southern Rhone hot and stewed, I figured if you add the hot vintage this must be overdone, right? I've also never really had a Guigal CdP I've loved. This was actually quite good! It pours translucent with a ruby core and moderate bricking with orange flecks toward the rim. The nose is fully mature with leather, farmyard, nutshells, old wet hay, forest undergrowth, cigar, strawberry jam, optimally ripe raspberries and quite lot of mixed brown spices. Evidently there is a touch of brett here that I am digging. The palate features medium minus tannin and medium acid. Fairly balanced, with only slightly elevated alcohol noted. Quite good, if a tad rustic.

  • Similar to the bottle I had in July 2013. Excellent bottle in its prime. I see no reason to rush but also no reason to wait. I do not think it will be getting any better. Opened a bit before drinking (no decant) and the wine opened and improved through the bottle. Rich and satisfying. Classic CDP palate of flavors.
