2003 Guigal Cote Rotie Brune Et Blonde
"I tasted through the component parts of the 2003 Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde, and it is a beautiful wine. Offering scents of bacon fat, olive-tinged black currant and cherry fruit, smoke, and earth as well as a concentrated, silky texture, it should drink well for a decade. Marcel and Philippe Guigal, never content to rest on their already impressive credentials, announced that in the future, they expect to release another single vineyard Cote Rotie from a 3.7 acre parcel in the Viria vineyard on the Cote Brune. The first vintage or two will probably be added to the Chateau dâ€™Ampuis. If the potential turns out to be as exceptional as they believe, lovers of these great wines will have a fourth single vineyard Cote Rotie called Viria to contemplate."
