Notes: The Saint-Joseph appellation is situated on the west bank of the Northern Rhône & produces full-bodied whites from Marsanne (95%) & Roussanne. Part of the production comes from the famous estates of Grippat & Vallouit. Some of the wine is aged in used oak but a significant proportion in stainless steel tanks to retain the freshness & fruit character. Powerful & complex nose with strong notes of white flowers. Delicate oak aromas & on the palate a clean supple attack & very aromatic finish with pears & citrus fruits. Overall exceptionally fresh & fruity with a round & powerful style.

 

Producer Info: Etienne Guigal arrived in this region in 1923 at the age of 14. During his lifetime he made over 67 vintages, & at the beginning of his career he participated in the development of Vidal-Fleury. Despite his young age, Marcel Guigal took over from his father in 1961. Marcel’s hard work & perseverance enabled the Guigals to buy Vidal-Fleury in 1984, although the establishment retains its own identity & commercial autonomy. In total, the vineyards of the Guigal estate cover over 75 hectares, including illustrious plots in the Côte Rôtie; ‘La Landonne’, ‘La Mouline’ & ‘La Turque’, Condrieu ‘La Doriane’, Hermitage ‘Ex-Voto’ & many more, all of which have become flagships of their appellations. In addition to acquiring many exceptional vineyards over the years, the Guigal family bought & lovingly restored the Château d’Ampuis, situated on the Rhône River with the backdrop of the Côte Brune & Côte Blonde hills. In 2006, the Guigals expanded their cellars in Ampuis, so that wine from both the Northern & the Southern appellations of the Rhône Valley could be produced & aged in these cellars. The upper level holds vast stainless steel vats, whilst the underground level holds some 5,000 barrels & larger oak foudres. Ever determined to improve the quality of their wines, they established a cooperage in 2003 in the grounds of the Château d’Ampuis. It is here that all the barrels used in the maturation of the Guigal wines are assembled & toasted.
