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.
