Winemaker's Notes

Guigal's Lieu-Dit Rouge comes off as a beautifully precise and elegant wine. Gorgeous spicy notes sit on top of delicate red fruits in this almost Burgundian wine.

Critical Acclaim

Deep, full-bodied, rich, elegant and precise, this stunning wine should drink well for 10-15+ years.
Range: 92-94"
