Cotes du Rhone

WINES OF THE WEEK

April 17, 2002|By Michael Dresser

1999 Guigal Cotes du Rhone (red) and 2000 Guigal Cotes du Rhone (white). $11. The master winemaker of the Rhone Valley scores twice with his current releases of his bargain-priced Cotes du Rhones. The full-bodied red is one of his best yet -- with vibrant blackberry and raspberry fruit and nuances of blueberry and black pepper. Serve with red meat, pasta or grilled poultry. The dry white has good weight and roundness, with flavors of pear, lemon, slate and white pepper. This would be ideal to serve with white-fleshed fish.
