E. Guigal Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2006 (France) Add to ...

  • Rating 92
  • Year 2006
  • Price $51.95

Known for $300-plus Côte-Rôties as well as for a good $17-to-$22 Côtes du Rhône, Guigal sources fruit for this pricy Châteauneuf from other growers. The standards are high and this is always beautifully made. The fruit in the 2006 is forward and succulent, hinting at cherry liqueur, enlivened by herbs and a touch of funky barnyard. It is drinking beautifully and should develop more fine funk for up to a decade.
