screw cap wine
It may have been the bottle, but this wine was a huge surprise, and not in the good way. It had character, but a bitter aftertaste, and components that did not really come together. For the price, there are many other examples of this blend in California with better results.
This was a surprising value in inot noir from this generally-overpriced region. Not a thing like a French Burgogne, but then, I did not expect Burgundian chracter. Wonderfully fruity ovrtones and smooth as silk, a great value for this particular wine. We ordered more.
this is a lovely wine, and very good value to boot. Very smooth, and drinking very well now. Although we drink solo, this should be an excellent food wine as well.
Earthy & Spicy
Very disappointing considering what it is. We love Guigal, and relished the chance to get a few bottles of the Brune and Blonde. Having grown up with Parker in DC in the mid-70's, I do not always like his views, but do respect them. I do not know what he tasted what originally rated, but the wine now is not what it was. That said, the price is a good one for those who want to try an example of a Cote Rotie, although one not on the very top of its game.
