94 Points from Wine Enthusiast

This bottling from Guigal punches above its weight class with penetrating dried-cherry and raspberry flavors accented by smoke, char, earth and leather. Unctuously full bodied and edged by a rasp of drying tannins, it’s a hedonistic but structured wine that should improve through 2030. Vintus LLC. Editors’ Choice

“So sexy” were the first words I wrote after smelling this wine, marveling at the way a combination of taut herbal notes, earth and lush fruit could evoke such a response. Made from purchased juice that the Guigals blend and age in large oak foudres for three years, it’s a finely detailed red, the succulence of its raspberry flavors set off by a plethora of herbal, nutty and spicy notes. Cocoa-textured tannins provide a bass line and contour that keep the wine feeling firm and restrained, ready to enjoy now but also capable of aging in bottle for another decade.

 

92 Points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Consumers who want a bit more oomph than the 2014 offers will want to seek out Guigal's 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape, which is a ripe, full-bodied example of the appellation. Bottled just a week before I tasted it, it was somewhat closed on the nose but is wonderfully velvety and rich, with plenty of dark fruit flavors, accented by dried spices on the long finish.

 

Winemaker Notes

Beautiful deep and dark red. Aromas of spices and ripe red berries. Round tannins with complexity and power. Rich, full and unctuous wine, with notes of ripe plums, stones and red fruits. A rich wine with harmony and balance.
