E Guigal, Brune et Blonde, Côte-Rôtie 2010
Unquestionably a great Côte-Rôtie vintage, this 2010 Brune et Blonde is surprisingly light on its feet with elegance, freshness and teasing, supple tannins providing the framework for the sweet red cherry fruit and tobacco. Nice and spicy too, with a touch of liquorice. Truly enchanting, this can be enjoyed now or be kept for the longer haul.
