Deep purple colour like a fresh bruise. This is sleek, creamy and modern, without a hair out of place. Fruit is ripe and bursting with blood plum flavour. Oak imparts a little vanilla to the aroma and flavour profile and there is a thread of liquorice winding through the palate. There's a little tar and some pleasant floral notes with air. A crowd pleaser.
Reddish black; creamy and dark fruit, nutty oak; soft and velvety mouthfeel, very ripe, dark and plummy fruit, some good finesse to the richness; this wine like many Guigals seem to have a very generous amount of oak that shrouds the wine and keeps it in a time capsule which leaves me wondering when this wine will emerge.
