Description

The structure and concentration of a great Côte-Rôtie wine

The estate

Domaine E. Guigal was founded in 1946 in Ampuis by Etienne Guigal. His son, Marcel, took over in 1961. Today, the third generation continues the heritage and values of this emblematic Rhône Valley family estate.

Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, Hermitage, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Saint-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage: the E. Guigal estate oversees a mosaic of vineyards placed in numerous appellations which make up a range of Rhône Valley wines of irreproachable quality.

Over the vintages, the E. Guigal house has seen huge development, notably becoming the owner in 1995 of the famous Château d’Ampuis, as well as many other winegrowing estates (Jean-Louis Grippat, domaine de Vallouit, Domaine de Bonserine and Château de Nalys, in Châteauneuf-du-Pape).

The vineyard

Château d'Ampuis 2019 is a Côte-Rôtie wine from a vineyard that includes 7 exceptional terroirs: Le Clos "Côte Blonde," La Garde "Côte Blonde," La Grande Plantée "Côte Blonde," La Pommière "Côte Brune," Le Pavillon Rouge "Côte Brune," Le Moulin "Côte Brune" and La Viria "Côte Brune." First planted in the 16th century, the vines are cultivated on steep terraces whose soils are mainly composed of granite (biotite granite, muscovite granite).

Winemaking and ageing

Following the harvest, the grapes were vinified in closed stainless steel vats. Fermentation then maceration for nearly 3 weeks. This Rhone Valley wine was aged in new barrels for 38 months.

Blend

Syrah (93%)
Viognier (7%)
