A Saint-Joseph red wine by E.Guigal, seductive in its complexity and aromatic richness

The producer

The E.Guigal estate was founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal, in Ampuis. His son, Marcel, took over in 1961. Today, it is the third generation that perpetuates the heritage and values of this iconic family estate in the Rhône Valley.

Guigal has developed rapidly, becoming the owner of the famous Château d'Ampuis in 1995, as well as several other wine estates (Jean-Louis Grippat, Domaine de Vallouit, Domaine de Bonserine and Château de Nalys, in Châteauneuf-du-Pape).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Looking even better than it did from barrel, the 2016 Saint-Joseph Vignes de l'Hospice displays hints of crushed stone on the nose alongside ripe cherries and vanilla. It's full-bodied, rich and silky, showing a sense of granitic reserve on the palate, then adds hints of baking spices and flowering garrigue on the long finish.
