Muted coffee and black cherry just discernible on the nose and palate, but tired tasting and medium bodied at best with shortish finish dominated by dried out tannins. Not as interesting as maybe it should once have been. Drink up.
Starting to show its age: ruby turning into brick towards rim. Dusty, a bit of smoke, some violet and cherry. Not giving much. Over 60 minutes some more fruit balances the overall impression of tertiary corrugated iron and sous-bois. Palate is broader, brandy-like, hot, some plum and cherry flicker and then quickly fade into a decent finish. Acid and tannins still evident. Not a great vintage and not the greatest of Guigal's offerings. I should have pulled the cork on this one years' ago. Drink up.
