Guigal is considered one of the Rhone's most important producers. Based in Ampuis (also home to Valrhona chocolates) they produce an extensive range of wines from up and down the Rhone Valley. Their Cotes du Rhone bottlings have been among the world's best wine bargains for the last 50+ years. It's all about selection, and no one does this better than Guigal. B-21's first Guigal for sale was the 1980 Cotes du Rhone Rouge. I got a chance to taste the 1980 earlier this year; remarkably fresh and lively, a testament to the work the Guigals do and the quality they seek throughout the Rhone. This dynamic family continues to produce remarkable wine values and at the same time, some of the finest wines on earth – their three single vineyards in Cote Rotie. Reference standard all.


The quality of this cuvée has soared over the past decade, and the 2018 Côtes du Rhône Blanc is another terrific vintage. Tasting like a mini Condrieu with its floral, orange blossom, and honeysuckle aromas and flavors, it’s medium-bodied, fresh, and lively on the palate, with an attractive mix of richness and freshness. Drink it over the coming year or two.
