2010 E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône

The wine, a blend of syrah, grenache and mourvèdre grapes, opens with black fruit and spice aromas.

E. Guigal produces an array of wines. They include some of the best from France’s Rhône Valley, ranging from the inexpensive Côtes du Rhône to the top-quality Côte-Rôties. I have selected the Côtes du Rhône red [$14.99; PLCB code: 8132] and scored it at 90 points. It will make for a nice Father’s Day gift and a perfect match with grilled sausages or a gourmet hamburger. The wine, a blend of syrah, grenache and mourvèdre grapes, opens with black fruit and spice aromas. The black fruit flavors, with hints of black cherries and pepper, are balanced with a nice touch of acidity in the finish.
