The Guigal domain was founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal in Ampuis, a small, ancient and now famous village found at the heart of the Côte-Rôtie appellation. It is overlooked by unique vineyards where vines and wine have been celebrated for well over 2,400 years. Marcel Guigal took over management of the domain when his father was struck by temporary but total blindness in 1961, and was later joined by his wife, Bernadette and they worked hand-in-hand to expand the family business. In 1975, their son Philippe was born and today he is the domain’s oenologist. Together with his wife, Eve, he represents the third generation and continues the family’s lifetime endeavour to create some of the greatest wines of the Rhône valley. To continue this pursuit, in 2003 the Guigals, launched themselves into a brand-new adventure: barrel making. This craft enables them to master another skill within the charming historical surroundings of the Château d’Ampuis and gives another level of control in which they can use to craft their ever growing portfolio of wine from around the Rhone Valley's.

Tasting Note:
This is a deep and dark Syrah with remarkable freshness. As typical of the region, loads of red and black fruit dominate with notes of cherry, strawberry and blackcurrant up front followed up with hints of cracked black pepper, savoury meat, floral violet, vanilla and delicate oak aromas. The tannins are soft and delicate which is due to the fact it has spent 18 months aging in oak barrels. 

This is a Dry, Medium+ to Full bodied wine with High acidity and Medium+ tannin. It is Pronounced in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium finish.
