PRODUCER: Land with 24 centuries of history behind it, worked and preserved by three generations of winemakers with family values at their core and a commitment to an illustrious terrain that produces prestigious wines. This, in a nutshell, is the Maison Guigal. Right from the beginning the motto, “No Pains No Gains” underpins the promise made to Etienne Guigal. A commitment to work together to follow in his footsteps, to communicate the family’s passion and create so many emotions. Today, Marcel and Philippe, along with their wives, are the guardians of this exceptional domain which combines history, devotion and a sense of togetherness. A breath of inspiration for generations to come.
WINEMAKING: A bend of 96 % Syrah, 4% Viognier. Closed stainless steel tanks. Automatic punching down and temperature controlled fermentaion. Average 3 weeks in tanks. This is followed by 36 months in oak barrels - 50% new oak
TASTING NOTES: This Guigal wine from the legendary slopes of Côte-Rôtie is beautifully balanced with scarcely perceptible acidity and tannins which add ageing potential – softened by long ageing in oak. Guigal put a touch of Viognier in the blend to add femininity allowing for round, soft tannins. Aromas of raspberry, blackberry and vanilla.
