Price on Application

750ml Bottle

A stunning nose of fig and black currant confiture draws you into a dense but velvety palate of blackberry, mocha, vanilla, mineral and tar flavours that course through a finish with fully embedded acidity and very refined tannins. Awesome length here. Hard to resist now, but better to cellar. Drink now through 2030." 96 points Wine Spectator:

Producer's Profile

Philippe Guigal

Etienne Guigal

Philippe Guigal was born in France not far from Ampuis, in Vienne, on January 23, 1975. At the early age of 6, he was inspired by his grandfather and father who worked together. Throughout his childhood he often joined them in the cellars and frequently traveled to visit the vineyards in the Rhone Valley. In 1992, he started his studies in organic chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Lyon and five years later he obtained his oenologist degree from the University of Burgundy.
