Chateau d’Ampuis Cote Rotie 2018, Guigal
Spices, black fruits and delicate oak aromas. A dense, expressive and intense nose. A tannic and racy wine. Aromas of prunes, blackberry and vanilla. Powerful, concentrated and structured palate. A wine from a tannic and muscular vintage due to the hot climate. Solid tannins, well rounded by long oak ageing.
The Guigal Domaine was founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal in the ancient village of Ampuis, home to the wines of the Côte-Rôtie. These vineyards are over 2,400 years old, and the small terraced walls – characteristic of the Roman period – are still visible today.
Closed stainless steel tanks. Temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation, 4 week maceration.
