Average critic rating : 89.0 points



The deep ruby/purple-tinged 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape offers expressive notes of kirsch liqueur, licorice, herbs, meats, and spice. This fleshy effort should drink nicely for 7-10 years. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 169 Feb 2007



Guigal’s 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape checks in as a blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre and the balance an assortment of permitted varieties. Aged two years in foudre, it’s an outstanding effort that is aging gracefully. Sweet currants, ground pepper, seaweed wrapper and roasted herbs all flow from the glass, and this medium-bodied, textured effort has plenty of charm, a wine that makes you want another glass (which is what a lot of 2004s lack). Enjoy bottles over the coming 4-5 years. Wine Advocate.February, 2014

Etienne Guigal, one of the most famous producers in the world, is regarded by Robert Parker as “the axis upon which the northern Rhône rests, a producer whose wines transcend all levels of the hierarchy. He is passionate about making single vineyard expressions using a non-interventionalist, distinctive approach. Best known for his ‘La Las’ (La Landonne, La Mouline and La Turque), these “other-wordly” wines are often spoken about in the same breath as the greatest Grand Crus of Bordeaux and Burgundy. However, due to Parker’s main focus being on the 'La Las' some other sensational wines from this magnificent producer slip under the radar. In particular, Guigal’s Lieu-Dit St Joseph offers terrific value. This tiny single vineyard, planted with old vines which range from 20 to 75 years of age, produces a very special wine.
