75cl * Vegan * 13% ABV * Northern Rhone, France
The Guigal family is famous for injecting energy and passion into the Cote-Rotie and Condrieu appellations in the 1960s and has become one of the biggest and most important producers in the Rhone Valley. Archetypal of the appellation, this is richly textured and intensely fruited with ripe tannin and good acidity - you can expect Syrah's typical pepperiness and meatiness to combine with some nice red fruit and cedar wood. Give this some time in bottle to mature or decant well. Pair with lamb shanks or dishes containing smoked bacon.
