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.

Vineyard

The Guigals work with fruit specifically
grown to make superior rose wines, grown
on soils that are predominantly either clay
limestone or pebbles and alluvia. The
2016 is comprised of 70% Grenache, 20%
Cinsault, and 10% Syrah, with an average
vine age of 25 years. Yields are low at
around 2.3 tons per acre.

Vinification

The handling in the winery is to create
a wine of complex flavors, texture and
structure. The wine, in fact, is handled in
the same way as their far more limited Tavel
rose, the single top appellation in France
for rose. The key is a masterful maceration
followed by a long, cool fermentation that
because of the quality of the grapes brings
an array of fruit, mineral and even a touch
of spice notes, as well as both an appetizing
fleshiness and a frame that carries the wine
along.
