E. GUIGAL

8 July 2016 News

Chicago Tribune features Guigal in a story on the “10 wines to wash down that grilled burger tonight.” Wine columnist Michael Austin features the 2012 E. Guigal Cotes du Rhone Rouge as a good quality and value option for a Rhone Valley red varietal. He states how this wine saves readers some money but doesn’t compromise the taste, noting you “still get a very nice wine full of bright raspberries, blue fruits, spice and suppleness.” The story went online this week and should appear in print in next Wednesday’s edition. Below is an excerpt.

“Can you imagine not seasoning a hamburger patty with a little bit of salt and black pepper? This is where the Rhone grape varieties come into play, especially the powerful and legendary syrah, which can range from floral to leathery, often with a bite of pepper. If you wanted lively red fruit, minerality, herbs, incense and pepper, you could try the deliciously layered 2013 Presqu’ile Syrah ($35) from California’s Santa Maria Valley. To save some money and still get a very nice wine full of bright raspberries, blue fruits, spice and suppleness, pick the 2012 E. Guigal Cotes du Rhone ($15), which is 50 percent syrah, 45 percent grenache and 5 percent mourvedre.”
