Guigal ‘Brune et Blonde’ Cote-Rotie 2010

Syrah from France - Rhone
Review Date : 10-Sep-2014
96% Syrah and 4% Viognier, aged in 60% new oak, 40% from estate fruit. Dark ruby-red with some brick on edge. The bouquet is linear and focussed with fragrant red fruits, a little resinous oak melded with stalk and herbal nuances tending complex in the savoury spectrum, building in depth in the glass. The palate has a concentrated and sweet core with great drive, and a seamless, fine-tannin flow. Pure black fruits and minerally notes open out with richness, purity and clarity. The oaking is very sensitive and allows the appellation to speak. 19.0-/20 Aug 2014 RRP $145.95 Dark, deep ruby-red colour, this has a very smooth-flowing, voluminous nose with perfumed red fruits withed with fine floral aromatics in a harmonious amalgam of savoury cedar, smoke, milk chocolate and oak, Fullish-bodied, the sweetness of red fruits and cedary, spicy oak feature on palate. Lifted milky MLF, chocolate, stonefruit, pepper and smoky nuances unfold to fill the mouth. The palate is seamless with very fine-grained structure in support, combining with the fruit extract to build in density. The fruit sweetness and succulence is enhanced by excellent acid spine and carried to a very long, sustained finish. This will develop greater complexities over the next 10-12+ years. 19.0-/20 May 2014 RRP $145.00
