RATING AND REVIEWS
WA 91 points: First vintage since the Guigal family took over ownership of this historic estate. It's a second wine, culled from elements that didn't go into the main cuvee, but it's still a solid effort. It's an interesting marriage of linear notes of crushed stone and lime with rounder, riper notes of melon and tangerine. Medium to full-bodied, there's a chalky-mineraltonic feel on the palate that keeps it lively through the fresh, clean finish.
