Tasting Notes

Deep dark ruby colour with mauve tints. Nose of black fruits, leather, liquorice, coffee flavour and oriental spices. Powerful palate attack with richness and an important tannic structure. This wine expresses the terroir through its finesse and the strength of its tannins. Great ageing potential, structured and concentrated with a rare intensity of flavour and colour.

About the Producer

Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

The Northern Rhône wine region exploded in popularity in the mid 80’s and it was really down to two people, Etienne Guigal and Robert Parker. Etienne took over the vineyard in 1946, but it was his promotional efforts of the region combined with Robert Parker that put his wine on the map. Soon the Rhône Valley became famous as a wine region producing some of the most seductively elegant and aromatic wines in the world, Guigal’s Côte Rôtie being one of them.

E.Guigal is truly a family business with Marcel, Etienne’s son, taking over the business in 1961 with the help of wife Bernadette and today their son Phillipe and wife Eve represent the third generation of this iconic property.
