Guardiola is particularly attractive. Always the tightest wine, the most difficult and sometimes askew when young, it still remains a favorite. It may be its focused intensity, the tension of a coiled spring; or the sense of austere purity it delivers; or the uniquely high-toned, almost stony bouquet. Or probably because all of the above together make for a wine of very powerful character. Of all crus it is the one requiring more time to release and relax. The sinew releases its tension just a bit, the tannins soften, the wine's authority remains. Pairs well with pork, steak, sausages, game, and braised meats.

Wine EnthusiastEditors' Choice. Aromas evoking red berry, camphor, crushed herb, dark spice and a whiff of espresso come together on this. The taut delicious palate is loaded with finesse and intensity, doling out juicy black cherry, pomegranate, cinnamon and licorice framed in polished tannins. Fresh acidity lends balance while a mineral note lifts the finish. Drink through 2025.
