The 2006 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis is exquisite. A feminine, grand cru Musigny-styled effort, it possesses abundant floral scents along with hints of frying lard interwoven with creme de cassis, cherries, and spice. Round and generous with a superb texture, terrific purity, and a long, spicy finish, there is not a hard edge to be found in this brilliant Cote Rotie. It should drink effortlessly for 15-20 years.

Wine Advocate # 182 - Apr 2009 by Robert Parker (93-95)

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 of 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 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; Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Tavel and Côtes-du-Rhône are also aged in the Ampuis cellars.

Today, Philippe Guigal, oenologist, is the third generation to continue the family endeavour to be at the service of the greatest wines of the Rhône Valley.

United as a family, Bernadette, Marcel and Philippe work together to develop this family owned and run enterprise.

The headquarters of the GUIGAL estate are situated at the Château d’Ampuis whilst the offices and cellars remain in the small ancient village, cradle of the CÔTE-ROTIE appellation.

The Château d’Ampuis is an ancient 12th century fort which was then prettified and developed into a Renaissance Château in the 16th Century ; set amongst the vines and bordered by the king of rivers; the Rhône. This imposing Seat, today classified as an historical monument, was constructed by the powerful Maugiron family and has welcomed several French kings over the centuries. Lovingly restored by the Guigal family since 1995, this jewel of the Renaissance lives again amongst the vineyards of the Côte-Rôtie; its prestigious past and future assured.
Sometimes, in magical places, a dream can endow reality with great beauty.

Goat’s milk is naturally homogenized, meaning that the cream is already blended with the milk, which makes the cheese rich and satisfying. Simple homemade goat cheese can be fun and tasty to make.
