Professional Wine Reviews for E. Guigal Cotes Du Rhone Rose 2017

Rated 90 by Jeb Dunnuck
There are two rosés, a slightly lighter styled Côtes du Rhône rosé and a richer Tavel. The 2017 Côtes du Rhône Rosé offers pretty, fresh notes of cherries and strawberries, and is medium-bodied, fresh and crisp. This cuvée has always leaned toward the richer end of the spectrum, but the 2017 is certainly in a fresher, more Provençal style.
Rated 90 by Vinous Media
Pale pink. Highly perfumed strawberry and candied rose scents, joined by a slowly building hint of orange zest. Dry and brisk on the palate, offering bitter cherry pit and red berry flavors and a spicy touch of white pepper. Finishes clean and long, displaying resonating florality and a subtle touch of dusty minerals.

Winery E. Guigal

Region: Rhone Valley

There are few wine regions in the world with a history as long and illustrious as that of the Rhone Valley in France. For over two thousand years, wines have been produced in this region, benefited by the excellent, mineral-rich soils of the region, and the varied climate which allows a wide range of grape varietals to grow. The Rhone Valley is now split into two quite separate regions, with the north part being characterized by its cooler, continental climate and the limited number of grape varietals grown, and the southern sub-region being perfect for growing a wide range of grapes, and producing an exciting number of different wine styles. The Rhone Valley is associated with elegant, flavorful wines, and certain grape varietals such as Viognier and Syrah, which are adept at expressing the finer features of their terroir.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
