Cotes Du Rhone it usually a mixture of Grenache and Syrah. Cotes Du Rhone is an appellation over 200 KM long so a lot of variety is possible. This Guigal 2004 pours and looks like a light body red wine. The nose subtle, wet earth, sweet berries and fruit. The taste is a brisk acidic fruit with a hint of chocolate, nuts and mineral water. The finish has medium tannins which are tart and a touch bitter. Over all good example of Cotes Du Rhone, not a full body, would be quite good with sweet bread and cheese.
