Medium bodied, with some dryness and herbal qualities to the spicy, peppery red fruits, this is a wine that wants to be good, but does not have the stuffing to get there. For a Guigal La La, this might look like a good price, but it's not worth the money.
Northern-Rhone tasting (Manuelas & Markus Home): Colour: More youthful in colour than his brother "Moulin" Nose: Tight nose, more withdrawn than the other Guigal. Dark & dried red fruit mixed with a bit of cinnamon, date and some paprika. Bit of pepper as well. Palate: Very pleasant palate. Good mix of fruit, oak, acidity, power and lenght.
Brickish color, decanted for 1 hour, distinct nose of green olives and some plum, the wine was still alive with the tannins very smooth but with good acidity. The finish was long and velvety and the wine held up over 3 hours of drinking. Voted WOTN.
