Our oenologists' opinion

Powerful bouquet

Its brick color offers an open nose with a touch of caramel, undergrowth and spicy notes of juniper. On the palate, this wine presents a good balance with a rather fine and elegant character.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

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.
