Guigal Côte-Rôtie Brune et Blonde de Guigal 2004

88 points

Cote-Rotie, Northern Rhone, France. 13%

Smooth, harmonious Syrah, with some nice floral notes.  Very different from Australian shiraz even cooler climate versions.  The Viognier isn’t as overt as in New World versions.

Moderate concentration.  Very drinkable, but didn’t always hold my attention.
