Wines to Know: GUIGAL CÔTES-DU-RHÔNE 2015

The masterful Karen Macneil features the 2015 Cotes-du-Rhone Rouge as a “wine to know,” elaborating that when she first tasted the wine she had a “sudden sensation that a sexy guy from Texas just walked into the room and “could still smell the campfire.” Karen offers context, adding that Guigal is “one of the Rhone’s most traditional and respected producers,” and that “if you love the meaty, gamey, spicy flavors of Rhone reds, this steal is for you.”
