DOMAINE E GUIGAL
Located in Ampuis in the northern Rhône, Guigal are one of the regions top producers. They boast a wide range of wines, from the generic and dependable Côtes-du-Rhône to the dazzling Côte-Rôtie, with many smart expressions in between.
They are proponents of the organic persuasion, with a steady focus on low yields, an abiding love of old vines, and a propensity for pushing out the harvest dates. The Guigal Côte-Rôtie wines are always highly sought after and often difficult to procure, none more so than the 2009s, which managed to score themselves a clean 100 points out of 100.
