E. Guigal Cotes du Rhone Rouge 2010
90  Stephen Tanzer 
Wine Advocate 89 "As for the red wines, first and foremost is Guigal’s Cotes du Rhone. I re-tasted the 2010 Cotes du Rhone, which is still in foudre. This cuvee is typically a blend of 50% Syrah and the rest Grenache and perhaps some Mourvedre. Guigal is known throughout the Rhone Valley for paying

E. Guigal 'Blanc' Cotes du Rhone Blanc 2013
(1)
" Traditionally dominated by Clairette, Grenache Blanc, and Bourboulenc, since 1991, the Guigals have searched for and encouraged plantings of Viognier for their Cotes du Rhone Blanc, and with the 2013 vintage the wine has 55% Viognier, complemented notably by Marsanne from St.-Péray and Roussanne,

Michel Gassier 'Cercius' Blanc 2013

La Grand Ribe 'Centenaire' Cotes du Rhone Red 2009
(3)
93  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 91-93 " The blockbuster 2009 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Centenaire tastes more like a Chateauneuf du Pape than a Cotes du Rhone. Dominated by Grenache with a small amount of Syrah included in the blend, the wine possesses great intensity, a terrific texture, full-bodied power, and

Wine Advocate 96 "And a candidate for the wine of the vintage, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is always a rough blend of 85% Grenache and the balance Syrah, Mourvedre, Clairette and other permitted varieties, that has the Grenache aged all in foudre and the Syrah and Mourvedre aged in
