TN: 2003 E. Guigal St. Joseph (France, Rhône, Northern Rhône, St. Joseph)

  • 2003 E. Guigal St. Joseph - France, Rhône, Northern Rhône, St. Joseph (7/15/2009)
    In a good space now. Cigar box, dark berries, black cherry, and cured meat on the nose - very nice. Medium bodied, relatively heavy mouthfeel, a good dose of tobacco, pepper, red fruits, and still gripping, but semi-rounded tannic structure. Finish is a bit on the short side yet, but still pleasant. I’m liking where these are heading. (91 pts.)

Sounds very nice for an 03 St Joseph. Thanks for the note.


I was buying this by the truckload when it was on clearance at Wine Exchange awhile back for $13. Really excellent stuff for the money. As one of my notes on CT states…“should have bought more…”

Ain’t that always the case? headbang

I bought half a case at that sale - it KILLS for that price, so much so that I forgot I purchased them at $13 each. I was thinking more the $25-30 range.

I picked up about the same, and at regular price this is about where it was before they slashed it to clear it out.

I killed all of mine some time ago, though. [cray.gif]
