Description

The roundness and richness of a Crozes-Hermitage white wine by E. Guigal

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

This cuvée is a white Crozes-Hermitage wine made partly from the former vineyard of Domaine L. de Vallouit, taken over in 2001 by E. Guigal. The vines are about 25 years old and are planted on warm, stony, filtering soils, partly on slopes.

Winemaking and ageing

Following the harvest, the grapes were given traditional vinification. Fermentation temperatures were controlled at around 18°C. This Rhône Valley wine was aged for approximately 12 months, part of which is spent under wood.
