Eye: Deep and dark red. Shiny. Nose: Fresh fruits with red berries and spices. Palate: Full, round and racy. Rounded and smooth tannins. A full-bodied, rich and intensly aromatic wine. Overall: Full with a long finish and plenty of elegance and finesse due to the well balanced tannins and fruit. Food and Wine Matching: Cold meats, meat, game bird and cheese.

Wine Enthusiast

Guigal's skills in selecting and blending large quantities of Côtes-du-Rhône remain unparalleled. The 2006 is full bodied, round in the mouth, full of typical black cherry and plum fruit, and hinting at anise and leather. It should drink well for up to five years.

Score: 89. —Joe Czerwinski, December 15, 2009.

Wine Advocate

The 2006 Cotes du Rhone exhibits a dark ruby hue that is slightly less saturated than the 2007. It possesses more pepper, garrigue, earth, and tar characteristics in addition to plenty of red and black fruit notes. Medium-bodied and juicy, it is best consumed over the next 2-3 years.

Score: 88. —Robert Parker, October 2008.

Wine Spectator

A textbook version, with mesquite and tobacco notes weaving through a core of crushed plum and blackberry fruit. A licorice edge frames the lightly grippy finish. Drink now. 250,000 cases made.

Score: 86. —James Molesworth, November 15, 2009.
