Guigal Cotes du Rhone Rouge 750Ml
Deep and dark red, shiny. Fresh fruits with red berries and spices on the nose. The palate is full, round and racy with rounded and smooth tannins. A full-bodied, rich and intensely aromatic wine. Full with a long finish and plenty of elegance and finesse due to the well balanced tannins and fruit.
The blend is 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache, and 10% Mourvedre. Complex and deceptively ageworthy, Guigal’s Côtes du Rhône Rouge is one of the world’s greatest wine values.
Guigal ages their Côtes du Rhône Rouge for a full two years (minimum) before release, almost unheard of in the Rhône. This expensive process results in a wine of unusual complexity, with a substantial and generous palate. After a long maceration and fermentation, aging takes place in oak foudres for 18 months.
