89-91/100 Jeb Dunnuck, eRobertParker.com (2013 Vintage)
"The 2013 Côtes du Rhône, is a bigger, richer wine than I remember and has tons of ripe Syrah characteristics. Black olives, smoked earth, pepper and plenty of dark fruit all emerge from this inky-colored, straight-up impressive Côtes du Rhône."
Vinology.com (2013 Vintage)
"This bottle is a bit of essential wine knowledge. At least once a quarter, I pop open this wine to introduce our students to the Cotes du Rhone region of France. Vintage after vintage, this has been a go-to bottle. I don’t even think about it anymore, I simply just buy it without thinking. And for someone who thinks about wine for a living, that is pretty remarkable. This is a great example of how a wine can be different every vintage but still retain it’s personality and finesses. It is always heavy in the Syrah department at about 50% every vintage, with Grenache and a bit of Mourvedre rounding out the blend. Typically, our reviews are for a single vintage, but I am confident in recommending all vintages current, past, and future of the Guigal Cotes du Rhone Rouge.
 
2013 .. There is a new lean power behind the fruit, still dense but pushing more to the red than blue this year. The change in fruit brings out more complex garrigue and forest floor aromas. There is a touch of  tapenade in the finish. A bit less rough and a whole lot more intellectual."
