One of the finest roses from this team yet, the 2015 Cotes du Rhone Rose from Guigal (60% Grenache, 30% Cinsault and 10% Syrah) is a downright classy beauty that gives up lots of white cherry, currants and floral notes in a medium-bodied, ultra pure and seamless style. It will keep nicely for 6-12 months. Jeb Dunnuck.
