Marks and reviews
The structure and concentration of a great Côte-Rôtie wine
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).

First planted in the 16th century, the vines are cultivated on steep terraces whose soils are mainly composed of granite (biotite granite, muscovite granite).
