1999 E. Guigal Châteauneuf-du-Pape $47
So the big wine magazine named this their 2002 wine of the year and the price went from $30 to about $50. Don’t fall for the hype; this wine is worth $30, but not $47.
It was good; it had a nice dark red color, a fruity with a touch of spice aroma, and a generally balanced taste. But, I couldn’t find any of the characteristic terroir of the appellation.
A nice wine, but I was a bit disappointed for the price.
