88-90/100 Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate, December 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"The 2014 Côtes du Rhône is more open and approachable than the 2013 and has an elegant, charming feel as well as lots of black cherries, spice and Provençal herbs. Drink it over the coming 5-6 years."
Richard Hemming MW, December 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"Tasting the 2014 vintage twice this year, I was delighted to find it is just as good as ever. The first encounter was chez Guigal in Ampuis two months ago while preparing my comprehensive Rhône 2016 report, then again at home just before Christmas. Both times, I was struck by just how elaborate and generous the aromas were, with tobacco and black pepper (the varietal characteristics) alongside rich, generous fruit and herbal notes (the sense of place).

The acidity is more refreshing than most generic Rhône wines, thanks to the high proportion of Syrah, and while the tannins are pleasingly firm and traditional, it is 100% drinkable now. This must surely be one of the most reliable large-scale wines in existence.

Indeed, two million bottles of this vintage were made, sourced from grapes grown by 300 different growers (all located in the southern Rhône, incidentally). The blend is 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre and it spends 18 months in oak before bottling."
