Land with 24 centuries of history behind it, worked and preserved by three generations of winemakers with family values at their core and a commitment to an illustrious terrain that produces prestigious wines. This, in a nutshell, is the Maison Guigal. Right from the beginning the motto, “No Pains No Gains” underpins the promise made to founder Etienne Guigal. A commitment to work together to follow in his footsteps, to communicate the family’s passion and create so many emotions. Today, Marcel and Philippe, along with their wives, are the guardians of this exceptional domain which combines history, devotion and a sense of togetherness. A breath of inspiration for generations to come.
Deep ruby red with violet tinges. The nose delivers notes of spice, red berries and delicate oak aromas. The palate is powerful and tannic. Aromas of blackcurrant buds and vanilla. Licorice and spicy finish. A racy and seductive wine. A perfect wine for putting down. Aged for 36 months in oak barrels (50% new oak).
