Winemaker Notes

This blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre is a rich crimson color in the glass. It is a generous, robust and full-bodied red wine, with a long elegant finish. Characterized by rich berry and plum fruit, mushroom, and licorice. This Gigondas has the structure and fruit to cellar for the next 10 years. Enjoy with rabbit.

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 Gigondas is outstanding, and certainly one of the best wines of that vintage. It has softened up considerably, and now that it is in bottle, offers loads of black cherry and raspberry notes intermixed with crushed rock, cedar, fruitcake, and spice. It is a big, medium to full-bodied wine that should continue to drink well for up to another decade.

Guigal Chateau d'Ampuis Winery Image

The Guigal domain was founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal in the ancient village of Ampuis, home of the wines of the Côte-Rôtie. In these vineyards that are over 2400 years old, you can still see the small terraced walls characteristic of the Roman period. Etienne Guigal arrived in this region in 1923 at the age of 14. He made wine for over 67 vintages and, at the beginning of his career, participated in the development of the Vidal-Fleury establishment.

Despite his young age, Marcel Guigal took over from his father in 1961 when the latter was victim to a brutal illness rendering him blind. Marcel's hard work and perseverance enabled the Guigals to buy out Vidal-Fleury in 1984, although the establishment retains its own identity and commercial autonomy. In 2000, the Guigals purchased the Jean-Louis Grippat estate in Saint-Joseph and Hermitage, as well as the Domaine de Vallouit in Côte-Rôtie, Hermitage, Saint-Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage.

In the cellars of the Guigal estate in Ampuis, the northern appellations of the Rhône Valley are produced and aged. These are the appellations of Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, Hermitage, Saint-Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage. The great appellations of the Southern Rhône, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Tavel and Côtes-du-Rhône, are also aged in the Ampuis cellars.
