Comme d'habitude, la rigueur de Guigal dans ses approvisionnements en raisins parvient à retranscrire la typicité de l'appellation. Ce gigondas, à l'image de son terroir, est ample et corsé, et ses tannins s'assoupliront davantage après une garde de cinq ans. More info

    Cuvée presentation

    As is so often the case, Guigal is among the appellation's finest at a competitive price. This Gigondas, with Grenache the main constituent, is matured in oak barrels (half of them new) for two years. It has the bearing of a great wine; a complex and refined nose emphasising stone fruits, licorice and undergrowth. On the palate, it is a full-bodied, generous wine with a steady, elegant finish. A wine that could easily be kept for five years before opening.

    Information about domain Guigal

    Located in Ampuis, the cradle of the Côte-Rôtie, Domaine Guigal was founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal. Guigal has contributed enormously to putting this appellation on the map, an appellation that was nearly lost to the phylloxera crisis at the close of the 19th century, the economic crisis of 1929 and the the two World Wars. In 1961, the young Marcel Guigal took over the reins. Driven by a desire to produce high quality wines, this young vigneron undeniably changed the perception of Côte-Rôtie wines. Nowadays, the brilliant enologist Philippe Guigal – son of Marcel – runs the domain. The house produces three cuvées “prestige” - La Landonne, La Mouline et La Turque – a sublime trilogy which wine connoisseurs go mad for. The vineyard now also runs over to the Rhone valley’s prestigious appellations of Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, Saint-Joseph, Hermitage, Gigondas, Crozes-Hermitage. They are all vinified and matured in the cellars of Ampuis. Marel Guigal and his son Philippe continue to devote considerable care to all of the winemaking process: low-intervention viticulture, work done entirely by hand, given the parcel’s situation on a 45 degree slope, vinification in temperature-controlled, stainless steel vats, élevage in new oak barrels for 42 months, to allow the wine to fully develop its aromas etc. The headquarters of the domain is the Château d'Ampuis, a jewel of the Renaissance which is listed as a Historic Monument. The Guigal signature is one of the most emblematic of the Rhone valley, it shines for its infallible constancy and rigorous grape production.
