Do you know ?
Located on the Rhône's right bank and spread between the cities of Ampuis, Saint-Cyr sur Rhône and Tupin-Semons, the Côte-Rôtie appellation -the furthest north Rhône Valley appellation- is divided between the “Côte Blonde,” with wines of finesse and elegance, and “Côte Brune,” with more “manly” types of wine. This separation is tied to a very distinct soil diversity. The name would have been issued back in the Middle-Age when Seigneur de Maugiron gave each of his daughters, a blond and a brunette, half of the domain each.
Domain and appellation
The Guigal domain stands among the most prestigious of the Rhône valley. Based in Ampuis, the domain is implemented in Condrieu, Hermitage, Saint-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, and also within some of the best appellations of the meridional Rhône such as Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
- Terroir: The Côte Blonde terraced vineyard is shaped as a Roman amphitheater and lays on siliceous and limestone soils. The harvests are hand-picked on steep slopes.
- Viticulture: The practice of a sustainable agriculture allows the enhancement and preservation of the prestigious terroir.
- Vinification: The vinification occurs at the Château d'Ampuis from the fermentation in stainless steel tanks to the 42 months oak barrels ageing process.
