($27; bottled two weeks before my visit) Red-ruby. Aromas of pruneau, licorice and spicecake, with a suggestion of caramel. Sweet and supple; voluminous and aromatic. But less complex in the middle palate than the Gigondas. Finishes with substantial, slightly tarry tannins that seem a tad dry after the bottling.

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.
