Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Traditional winemakeing methods, temperature controlled fermentation. Long soaking on the skins. Full with a long finish and plenty of elegance and finesse due to the well balanced tannins and fruit.

Winemaker's Notes

Unlike most producers in the appellation Guigal ages his Cote du Rhone rouge for a full two years before release. This expensive process results in a wine of unusual aromatic complexity, with a substantial and generous palate. Consistent from vintage to vintage, and deceptively age-worthy in the riper years.
