  • Medium body w nice finish. Nice mature notes of dark red fruit, minerals and som spicy meats. Less powerful than most Guigal wines.

  • I had this bottle without food accompaniment, which I realize was not a good idea. Classic Syrah nose. Rustique style, with a good amount of tannins. The primary fruit is fading out.

  • Deep ruby core fading to pale ruby around the rim. Nose shows a combination of red and black fruit, hints of spice and oak. Not particularly expressive. Medium(+) acidity, medium velvety tannins, medium body. Well balanced, but lacks the complexity to be considered a vin de garde. At peak, drink it up.

  • Deep colour, staring to clear around the edges but still only hints of brick. Nose is a lot of blackcurrant and some spices. Palate is medium bodied with dark fruit and berry, some black pepper and maybe a hint of smoky licorice. Lingers pleasantly. Very enjoyable typical Rhone wine, will not suffer from a few more years of cellaring, but I doubt if it's worth the wait if you're not especially fond of mature wines. Guigal's prestige wines (Chateau d'Ampuis and up - certainly La Landonne, La Mouline and La Turque) can be stored almost for ever and are guaranteed to provide an extraordinary experience. In the lower price ranges you still get a lot for your money, but the wines are less long-lived. In my opinion this should be drunk within the next three to five years for maximum enjoyment.

  • Deep ruby core, pale ruby rim. Nose shows dark fruit, vanilla, notes of black olive and damp earth. Interesting but a bit surly and lacking in aromatic vibrancy. Palate is medium/full bodied, with ripe blackcurrant fruit, vanilla, spice, reasonbale acidity but slightly brawny with some chewy tannins on the medium/good length finish which shows some earth notes. Not bad but a touch unwieldy. Inconsistent notes.
