  • Big, jammy and extracted - a modern steakhouse wine.

  • Dark magenta color. There's dark berries and smoky oak on the rich, lush, inky palate. It smells and tastes like syrah but the fancy oak just gets in the way for me, even though it's not totally overwhelming or disgusting. Hopefully it will integrate with time. It is a stylish wine, but I'd rather drink other producers from St. Joseph. 87+

  • vin carafé une heure
    Robe rouge sombre, nez discret avec une touche de gibier,bouche comportant des atomes de cassis, de cuir, de viande. Les tannins et le boisé sont encore très présents et les arômes un peu en retrait : vin à attendre.

  • Full garnet with a hint of purple. Big oaky nose full of dark fruit and smoke. With air, some meat emerges which is a nice counterbalance to the oak. Similarly, the palate becomes more complex with air. A robust wine to be sure - probably a bit heavy handed - but fine underlying material. Will be interesting to follow the evolution of this wine to see if it ever really integrates. Delicious, yet hopefully just the beginning. We will see as many of the non-la la special cuvee Guigal's have a spotty record in my opinion. Fruit here is just fantastic. (93+?)

  • Didn't like it as much as I thought I would. Rather strong and immediate nose of petrol, and oaky vanilla at first. Dark fruits emerged in the palate and aroma later. There was also a funny berry taste that I couldn't quite place. I was expecting a bit more from this wine but perhaps since it was not decanted (only aerated with a device) I didn't get the best out of it. Still have a few bottles will try again later.
