Marks and reviews
A powerful and balanced white Côtes du Rhône wine
The E. Guigal estate was founded in Ampuis in 1946 by Etienne Guigal. His son, Marcel, took over in 1961. Today, the third generation continues the heritage and values of this iconic family-run house in the Rhône Valley.
The E. Guigal estate takes care of a mosaic of vineyards located in several appellations - Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, Hermitage, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Saint-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage – which produce a range of wines of irreproachable quality.
Across the vintages, the E. Guigal house has seen major development, notably becoming the owner of the famous Château d’Ampuis in 1995, as well as many wine estates (Jean-Louis Grippat, Domaine de Vallouit, Domaine de Bonserine and Château de Nalys, in Châteauneuf-du-Pape).
This 2021 blend from E. Guigal is a Côtes du Rhône wine from vines aged about 25 years old, cultivated on greatly diverse soils made up of sediment and granite limestone.
Winemaking and ageing

Characteristics and tasting tips for Côtes du Rhône 2021 from E. Guigal
Lustrous and light, the colour is of a beautiful yellow gold.
The fresh aromatic bouquet expresses perfectly its dominant grape, viognier, by giving off white flower, apricot, acacia and white peach notes.
The palate is fruity, rich and creamy.
The wine can be tasted from now, but it has great laying down capacity with the potential of development until around 2024.
For the best tasting, serve at around 10°C.
Food and wine pairing
This wine is the perfect partner for Asian cuisine, various starter courses and fish.
