This is a nice wine. Golden in color, clear and bright. It has a very pretty nose. Peaches with a floral note. Slightly viscous texture. On the palate, nice acidity. Peach fruit notes. Good finish. This is refreshing and an excellent value. Nice on its own, but better with food. This would be nice with lighter foods such as fresh seafood.
The Guigal Cotes du Rhone is consistently one of the best values in wine. This is the red, but they also make white and rose. It is a blend of 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache, and 10% Mourvèdre. Purple in color, ruby at the rim, mostly opaque and bright. The nose is dusty, slight earthiness with black cherries and black raspberries. Medium to full bodied. Very tasty. Nice texture. This drinks easy but it also has some stuffing. On the palate, light tannins with black raspberries and black cherries. Well balanced. Amazingly, they make 4.5 million bottles of this wine and keep the quality
