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.

Vinification

After alcoholic fermentation and 3 weeks of maceration, the wine was aged in barrel for 18 months.

Wine

Crozes-Hermitage is the largest of the appellations of the Northern Rhône, comprising just over 2,500 acres planted to Syrah for red wine and Marsanne and Roussanne for white. The vineyards are largely on the plain, producing reasonably priced and straightforward wines, but there are also some superb hillside vineyards which provide concentrated, long-lived wines. In general, the red wines have prototypical Syrah flavors, spicy and persistent, with vigor and intensity of flavor in an appealingly rustic style.
