A spicy red from Guigal, one of France’s top wineries, with big bold flavours of dark fruits and an attractive peppery note. The blend of predominantly Syrah grapes with a proportion of Grenache and Mourvèdre lends the wine complexity. This is a wine that would be great partnered with red meats.
The Guigal Estate was founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal in Ampuis in the Côte-Rôtie appellation and is now on its third generation of winemakers with head winemaker Philippe continuing the family business.
Robert Parker describes this wine as 'Supple and surprisingly intense, this delicious effort can age for 4-5 years.'
