Guigal's Cote-Rotie Brune et Blonde is a wine of finesse and complexity that ages beautifully, developing aromas and flavours of black pepper, spice, licorice, and game. It is one of the great wines of the world.


94/100 James Suckling, October 2016 (2012 Vintage)
"Bottled as a single blend in 2012, this has a fine, peppery edge to the nose with elegant dark-chocolate aromas ahead of brambly dark plums and black-cherry fruits. There's a wealth of richness and power here, and it's so layered and dense. A wine that shows a smooth build of fine and even tannin. The gentle pepperiness cracks into the finish, where there's another warm dark chocolate afterglow. This spent 36 months in oak, of which 50% was new. Best from 2018 and for at least a decade afterwards."


93/100 Jeb Dunnuck, eRobertParker.com, December 2014 (2012 Vintage)
"I think the 2012 Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde will be slightly better than the 2011, but both have upfront, sexy, rounded and textured profiles. Medium to full-bodied, with lots of dark fruits, bouquet garni, smoke and leafy herbs, it will deliver lots pleasure on release and over the following decade."


93/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous, March 2016 (2012 Vintage)
"Saturated ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes black and blue fruit liqueur, incense and fresh flowers, and notes of smoky minerals, vanilla and licorice adds complexity. Coats the palate with sweet cherry-vanilla and blueberry flavours given lift and cut by zesty acidity and a hint of cracked pepper. Finishes on a gently tannic note, showing excellent lift and floral-driven tenacity."


92/100 Wine Spectator, April 2016 (2012 Vintage)
"This offers a distinctive set of alder and olive aromas before giving way to a slightly taut core of bitter cherry, plum and red currant fruit. Lovely bay and leather accents hang on the background, leading to a long, grippy finish that exudes a slightly perfumy sandalwood note. Best from 2017 through 2027."
