Guigal Côtes du Rhône is easily our biggest selling French red. Every year it comes through offering plenty of everything at a very affordable price from one of the Rhône Valley's most famed and respected winemakers. This is one of those of those wines that's great to have on hand as it suits virtually every occasion.

Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"Deep dark red and shiny dress. Nose of black fruits marked by notes of spices. Full- bodied wine, full and racy. Tannins rounded, very coated but present in the mouth. This wine is distinguished by its size, heat and aromatic intensity.Complete wine, good persistence. Elegance and finesse due to a nice balance between tannins and fruits."

90/100 Stuart Pigott, (2020 Vintage)
"An impressive Cotes-du-Rhone with stacks of blackberry and black raspberry fruit wrapped around a core of moderately dry tannins on the bold palate. Long self-confidently dry finish. A cuvee of 50% syrah, 45% grenache and 5% mourvedre. Drink now."

90/100 Decanter (2020 Vintage)
"Modern, lifted and a bit heady, but attractive and evocative. Black cherry inkiness segues into a dense palate where all the fruit is crammed into a structured body with drying tannins. Herbs and stones hemmed in by a firm grip. A good all rounder."

Reviews for previous vintages below…

Joelle Thomson, Drinksbiz Magazine, January 2024 (2019 Vintage)
"Impressive southern French red blend with the dark fruit, soft mouthfeel and complex aromas of 55% Syrah with Grenache and Mourvèdre adding depth, plumpness and richness of flavour. This wine is made with grapes grown by 850 growers, but the wine is made entirely by the Guigal family. Improvements in quality over the past couple of decades include increasing the portion of Syrah in the blend (adding weight and robust flavours), adding Mourvèdre to the wine (for complexity) and longer aging which softens and smooths it."

92/100 Jeb Dunnuck (2019 Vintage)
"The 2019 Côtes du Rhône will be a no-brainer purchase. This Syrah-heavy red has lots of blackberry, bouquet garni, and peppery notes in a ripe, full-bodied, textured style. It’s well worth buying and drinking over the coming 5-7 years."

5 Stars & Number 2, Cuisine International Reds Tasting, April 2023 (2018 Vintage)
"Medium colour in the glass belies the rich dark fruit aromas alongside a meaty character on the nose. The palate is bold with dark fruit flavours sitting alongside sweet red fruits and positive development characters add complexity. The tannins are bold, yet soft and moreish."

5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2022 (2018 Vintage)
"Beautifully styled and classic in structure, the wine shows ripe fruit richness with cake spice, cured meat and walnut characters, leading to a wonderfully weighted palate offering silky mouthfeel and savoury undertones. Satisfying and comforting with a prolonged velvety finish. At its best: now to 2028."

93/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, March 2022 (2018 Vintage)
"I can never open a bottle of Guigal Côte du Rhône without being surprised by its extraordinary value and consistency – and it’s available worldwide. A classic blend of syrah, grenache and mourvèdre grapes. Intense dark berry, dark cherry, black pepper, anise, spice, violet and tobacco leaf. A delicious wine that offers perfect drinking now."

91/100 Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (2018 Vintage)
"Looking more complex and complete than the 2017 at this point, the 2018 Cotes du Rhone still has a year or so of élevage ahead of it. It has a slightly herbal, briary note, dark berry fruit and hints of mocha on the full-bodied palate. Round and fleshy, it finishes smooth and velvety."
