    Cote Rotie Wine Tasting, Episode #293, 8/15/2007, (See more on Wine Library TV...) 93 points

    (GUIGAL COTE ROTIE BRUNE ET BLONDE) #1; COLOR-very dark; NOSE-Gorgeous, beautiful Pink rose; candy-esque (Fun Dip powder); one of the BEST noses in a while; TASTE-Kills it; by far the biggest body of the 3 wines; intense flavor of cherries, cassis & black raspberries; very velvety, explosive & rich; this is what wine is supposed to be - perfect balance of Old & New World; the Syrah is rich, pure & unmanipulated; very true to the Rhone; has the body & explosiveness that you look for in a very serious bottle of wine; green beans bouncing on my palate; little crouton/bready action on finish; you cannot find a silkier wine; just a fantastic CR; can last 7-15 years; great pairing w/ Duck; RP-90/93; GV-93

    (E. Guigal Côte-Rôtie Brune et Blonde) Lovely red fruit and cherry nose; tasty, tart red fruit palate with good body and acidity; medium-plus finish

    (Guigal Côte-Rôtie Brune et Blonde) A decent colour here, and with some round, sweet and rather young Syrah character on the nose. Rather soft on the palate, perhaps rather unfocused, and slightly hot, a vintage characteristic no doubt. Low acidity, and rather a firm tannic backbone. To me it seems very typical of the 2003 vintage. Hot fruit. It is decent, but there is not much more to say than that.
