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.

Guigal's plump, medium-bodied 2018 Cotes du Rhone Rose is a reminder that this family firm continues to value flavor throughout its lineup. Hints of strawberries, white peach and melon join with citrus to make a bold impression yet one that's not inelegant, finishing long and silky.

90 points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate (Jul 2019)
