The 2003 Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde is probably the finest cuvée of regular Cote Rotie that Guigal has produced since 1999 or 1991. Stunningly rich, it offers a beautiful, sweet nose of cassis, mocha, espresso, bacon fat, black olives, and underbrush. Some smoked meat notes also make an appearance in this rich, lush, opulent wine. This is a beauty.

Still tight, but this has a solid core of muscular fig paste, currant, tobacco, black olive and iron notes, followed by a long, well-structured finish. Shows the heat of the vintage, but isn’t roasted. Best from 2008 through 2015.

I tasted through the component parts of the 2003 Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde, and it is a beautiful wine. Offering scents of bacon fat, olive-tinged black currant and cherry fruit, smoke, and earth as well as a concentrated, silky texture, it should drink well for a decade.
