Wine Advocate Review Rated 89 There are 3.5 million bottles of the 2009 Cotes du Rhone red, which represents an amazing value. A blend of 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 10% Mourvedre, it comes primarily from the Plan de Dieu (Plain of God), which is situated northeast of Chateauneuf du Pape. This tank-aged, deep ruby/purple-colored, concentrated, fleshy, medium to full-bodied, supple offering reveals plenty of pepper, kirsch and black currant fruit intermixed with a notion of flowers. It is meant to be consumed during its first 2-3 years of life although I have tasted 10-year-old bottles that are still holding together.
Wine Tasting Notes The wine is exceptionally structured, rich, and complex. Unlike most producers in the appellation Guigal ages his Cotes Du Rhone Rouge for a full two years before release. This expensive process results in a wine of unusual aromatic complexity, with a substantial and generous palate. Consistent from vintage to vintage, and deceptively age-worthy in the riper years, Guigal's Cotes Du Rhone Rouge is one of the world's greatest wine values.
