    June 29, 2019 - medium red, brick rim - smoky roasted meat nose - medium full mouth with mature black pepper syrah fruit and good acid balance - fully resolved soft tannins - 15 sec finish - not exciting, but a very good quality Guigal that is fully mature to my taste - probably as good as it will get right now, though likely will plateau for another 5-10 yrs - very appealing as an accompaniment with grilled ribeye

    June 16, 2019 - Nice red almost purple color, not showing clear signs of age, but on the nose and when you drink it, it is surprisingly developed with dark cherries and little complexity. Very sweet with limited acidity and tannin - feels a little bit over the top. Not how I remember these wines, so may be a slightly off bottle.

    June 16, 2019 - A huge production of 220,000 bottles - at 37 hl/ha this equates to the production of 45 hectares, or 20% of the entire appellation (!). A blend of 96% Syrah and 4% Viognier (co-fermented), 36 months in 50% new oak, 13.5% ABV. Decanted for two hours. There is ripe fruit and a fresh mineral core, with violets, black pepper and smoked bacon, and lots of well-managed, savoury oak. Medium to full body (13.5% ABV), good persistence. It's interesting how this wine manages to be expressive of the AOC and still feel a bit anonymous. But there is no doubting its quality. Early maturity, should have the legs for another 5-10 years.
