    June 24, 2021 - A better wine than the recent scores suggest and better overall than the 89.7 cumulative score at the time of this note. In no way a powerhouse, but there is nothing wrong with that. This is a Burgundian styled CdP, and it delivers noteworthy range and depth, in layers. True to place, restrained richness, and thus excellent balance. Highly appealing! 91-92.

    May 30, 2021 - Opened two bottles yesterday. Disappointing; the Guigal ordinary Cote de Rhône is better. Decanted for 2 hours but it never came together. It was astringent and lacked any fruit.

    May 16, 2021 - A bit disappointing given the producer and the appellation.
    This wine shows more of a "negociant touch" with less defined aromatic profile. I would not even have been able to identify this as a CdP in a blind tasting. Dark fruit, plenty of alcohol but not much of the complexity...
    Not going to improve either...

    May 28, 2020 - Disappointing. I'd have tagged it as a middling syrah.

  • Callum's Corkers Likes this wine: 90 points

    February 15, 2019 - Birthday gift. Decanted.

    Rich, soft, big silky red with floury tannins, long Mocha/bitter dark choc' flavours, warm alc (14.5% !!) Seems mature already - or at least you might as well drink up now because as pleasent as this is right now there's nothing complex/powerful enough about it to suggest beneficial cellaring. Drink up, it's superb today. Noted lack of minerals/earthies, any remaining acid is only just hanging in there. In mature plateau. Easy to drink without food, as with many Guigal wines: made in an agreeable 'popular commercial' style. (Nought wrong with that!)
