Northern Rhone tasting (London): I am not generally a fan of the LaLaLas -- more a Jamet kind of guy -- but if any wine is going to sell you on Guigal, it's this one. Wide open, ripe, fruity, funky, sweet, great length, big without being heavy or phenolic. A distinctly ripe wine but not unbalanced at all, or cloying. In a great place right now -- probably "pre-secondary" peak -- but has the stuff to age further.
