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

  • Domaine Guigal

    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.
