Even the 2015 Côtes du Rhône release is a beauty. As Marcel Guigal pointed out, "For us, it's a grand vin, not a simple, fruity wine."
“As usual, the 2015 Cotes du Rhone features a majority of Syrah, largely sourced from the western side of the Rhône. Spicy, peppery, hickory aromas lead off, adding berries up front and then moving into darker fruit and more savory notes of black olive by the finish. This medium to full-bodied wine finishes long and silky, avoiding any of the vintage's hard tannins, while still boasting the concentration to drink well through at least 2023. 91 points.” Drink 2018-2023.
