This full-bodied wine offers a robust core of dark fruit, and savory white pepper notes that make it a superb food wine.

Rating
Vintage 2010 - Wine Spectator, 89 Points
Offers a roasted feel, with dark bramble, plum and tobacco notes accented by hints of pastis and apple wood, leading to a ganache- and charcoal-infused finish. Distinctive in feel, revealing a prominent yet integrated woodsy element.

Vintage 2010 - 90 Points, International Wine Cellar
Opaque ruby. Smoky cherry and black raspberry aromas are complicated by olive, allspice and licorice, with a sexy floral quality in the background. Sappy dark berry and lavender pastille flavors display impressive depth and power without excess weight. Closes sweet, gently tannic and long, with lingering spice and floral pastille notes.


Wine maker notes
Deep and dark red. Shiny. Aromas of fresh fruits with red berries and spices. Full, round and racy. Rounded and smooth tannins. A full-bodied, rich and intensely aromatic wine.

Other text
Guigal is arguably the most famous producer in the Rhône Valley. Founded by Étienne Guigal in 1946, his son Marcel is almost single-handedly responsible for the regions resurgence over the last few decades.

Food pairing
Try with any red meat dishes or with rich vegetarian dishes like moussaka.
