Very oaky with ripe fruit for days. Meant to age.

Deep ruby hue with garnet rim variation. Stewed red and black fruit, blackberry, cassis, rhubarb, black cherries, leather, peat, smoked meat, wet earth, mushrooms, molasses, nutmeg, cardamom, bay leaf, and oak. Strong structure, soft tannins, and finesse. Medium-plus finish. Vintage 2012. ABV 13.5%. #côterôtie #bruneetblonde #guigal #guigalwine #syrah #viognier #rhône #rhônevalley #frenchwine #winemoments #winedown2019

Cassis with a bit of soil and earth on the nose. The palate is cloaked with new oak - vanilla, baking spice, cedar, nuttiness. Underneath that new oak, you get quite a bit of blueberry, red cherry, with some mushroomy character. Smooth and round. Come back at age 10 and hopefully the new oak will be integrated by then. I would drink this but not with the price it is available for. 88+

I loved 2011 & @ £45 the new vintage hits the spot nicely 👍 Drinking great but will age nice 😎

🍷 Ruby w/ purple hue

👃 A piggy in the farm chomping on peppered smoked herb & blackberry, washing it down w/ a cherry & vanilla cola wearing violets in its ears, a stylish leather thong & dancing on woodchip w/ a blueberry cream pie face 🐷

👄 Med body of smooth earthy parma violets, blackberry, blueberry pie & cherry cola

🎯 Long dark cherry & blackberry oink 🐽

Wonderful wine with notes of freshly sanded wood, leather, blackberry and singed sugar coming through after opening up. Really great.

Unfortunately this was a pop n pour in the Delta club, and this wine needs hours in the decanter. Even though it was relatively closed, you can still get a sense for the muscular structure and smokey power of this wine. Will need to come back to this.
