E. Guigal Crozes-Hermitage 2009

Posted by

Guigal, famous for the three great “la” Cote-Roties, is of course a huge negocient as well. A modernist producer that makes wine all over the Rhone, I generally steer away from wines made in this context. However, this vintage of the Guigal Crozes-Hermitage is an excellent quality northern Rhone cooler-climate syrah at a fair price and well worth picking up.

The wine has a modern fruity nose and a modern palate with plenty of savory characteristics and umami. There is somewhat of a lack of structure and balance on the finish, but overall this is very drinkable and a good value for the quality.

Very Good+
~$45 at Kits Wine
