Red-ruby color. Aromas of black fruits, pepper and leather. Silky, fresh and intensely flavored, with ripe syrah notes of dark berries, leather and tobacco complicated by suggestions of Provencal herbs. Persistent and firm on the finish. Serious juice thanks to the high percentage of syrah, and a great value. (Guigal now produces a staggering 1.7 million bottles of red Cotes du Rhone; with its state-of-the-art bottling line, there are now just five bottlings done over a six-month period.)

About This Producer


Marcel Guigal - the so-called "pivot" of the Cote-Rotie appellation - is both an owner and negociant, and vinifies over 40% of all Cote-Rotie. His father, Etienne, started out quite modestly in 1946, and over the next decades the company has grown to encompass all that is best in the Rhone Valley. Not only known for the massive hits in Hermitage and Cote-Rotie, the Guigal name is synonymous with quality all along the scale, from the humble Cotes-du-Rhone to the Big Three - La Landonne, La Mouline and La Turque.
