Guigal produces more Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde than any other producer of the appellation. The Brune et Blonde often spends up to three years in small oak casks and is always a blend of purchases from approximately four dozen small growers with his estate fruit. There are about 45,000 cases of this cuvee, which generally contains 8-10% co-fermented Viognier. Even more evolved is the 2007, which offers up sweet aromas of cherry jam, raspberries, bacon fat, Provencal herbs and black olives. This exuberant, flamboyant, fleshy Cote Rotie can be drunk over the next decade
92 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
"Comprised of 96% Syrah and 4% Viognier...it offers gorgeously complex aromas of sour cherries, blackberry, underbrush, violets, olive and steak tartare to go with a seamless, fresh and lively palate feel."
