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 Cote-Rotie 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.

Food pairing

Cold meats, meat, game bird and cheese

Soil type

Varied soil, sediment, limestone, granite. Pebbles and Alluvia.

Vineyard

The soils are varied, consisting mainly sedimentary, limestone and granite soils, with many pebbles and alluvial deposits. The average yield is around 2.1 tons per acre, and the average age of the vines is 35 years.

Vinification

Guigal ages their Cotes du Rhone Rouge for a full two years (minimum) before release, almost unheard of in the Rhone. This expensive process results in a wine of unusual complexity, with a substantial and generous palate. After a long maceration and fermentation, aging takes place in oak foudres for 18 months.

Winemaking

Traditional winemakeing methods, temperature controlled fermentation. Long soaking on the skins.
