Technical Info

Estate

The firm of E. Guigal, located in Ampuis, was founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal. Since 1961 his son Marcel has led the estate, and his unparalleled work ethic and dedication to quality have brought attention to Côte-Rôtie and other appellations throughout the Rhone that were in danger of being lost, and lifted the Guigal wines to the pinnacle of the wine world. Today, Marcel's son Philippe serves as Director and Oenologist, continuing the tradition of leadership in the Rhone Valley and uncompromising excellence.

Soil type

Round pebbles and red clay.

Vinification

Guigal rigorously selects wines from high quality growers that they then age in their cellars in Ampuis. They purchase as soon as possible after harvest, often before malolactic fermentation is finished, so that they can select what they believe are lots with the potential to become great wine. The long ageing process Guigal gives their Chateauneufs then gives these wines beautiful texture and harmony. Their Chateauneufs spend a minimum of 2-3 years in large oak casks, followed by extended bottle aging.

Viticulture

The vines average 45 years in age, and are planted on the unique stony, red clay soils of the area, producing rich, complex red wines with great aging potential. Yields are low at arnd 2 tons per acre.

Winemaking

Traditional winemaking with temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation. 3 weeks maceration in tanks.
Ageing: 2 years in oak foudres.
