Guigal makes a wide variety of wines in a wide price range. There are some great values in the lower price range. As the price for their Chateauneuf has risen, this wine has become a place to find some value. Purple in color, with a thin ruby rim. The nose is great with black raspberries, slight roasted herbs and meats with some spice and dust. Medium bodied. Nice texture. On the palate, black cherry fruit with underlying roasted meats and some spice. Nice energy. Long finish. This is drinking well now and should continue to drink well for ten to twelve more years. A nice drink on its own, this should be very food friendly from a burger to pizza.
