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.

Tasting notes

Deep dark ruby colour with a nose of black fruits, leather, coffee and spices. Powerful and rich on the palate with structured tannins, while still expressing the terroir with its finesse.

Vinification

The 100% Syrah wine undergoes a fourweek maceration and pump-overs, followed by extended barrel aging for 42 months in new French oak. The wine is bottled without fining or filtration, creating a wine of that represents the pinnacle of the appellation, with exceptional concentration and great potential longevity.

Vineyard

The grapes are come from four steepsloped vineyards: Bessards (30%), Greffieux (30%), L’Hermite (20%), and Murets (20%). The vines at these sites average 40-90 years in age, and the soil types range from clay to granite to alluvial. Yields are 35 Hl/hectare.
