Star of the Rhône

Founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal and still family run today, the Guigal domain is in the ancient village of Ampuis, home to the wines of the Côte Rôtie. And that’s not the only example of this award-winning winery’s rich heritage. The vineyards are over 2,400 years old and the small, terraced walls, characteristic of the Roman period, are still visible today.

Internationally recognised for producing some of the greatest wines in the Rhône Valley, the Guigal family is passionate about two grapes, Viognier and Syrah. They were instrumental in the replanting of both varietals, so it’s not surprising that Guigal’s Côtes du Rhône has a high proportion of Syrah, producing a wine that is full-bodied yet elegant.

Tasting note

A spicy red from Guigal, one of France’s top wineries, with big bold flavours of dark fruits and an attractive peppery note. The blend of predominantly Syrah grapes with a proportion of Grenache and Mourvèdre lends the wine complexity. This is a wine that would be great partnered with red meats.

The Guigal Estate was founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal in Ampuis in the Côte-Rôtie appellation and is now on its third generation of winemakers with head winemaker Philippe continuing the family business.

Robert Parker describes this wine as 'Supple and surprisingly intense, this delicious effort can age for 4-5 years.'
