E. Guigal Cote-Rotie 2015

This Guigal wine from the legendary slopes of Côte-Rôtie is beautifully balanced with scarcely perceptible acidity and tannins which add ageing potential – softened by long ageing in oak. Guigal put a touch of Viognier in the blend to add femininity allowing for round, soft tannins. Aromas of raspberry, blackberry and vanilla.
