Winemaker's Notes:

The Guigal family owns vineyards in Condrieu and in the Côte-Rôtie with illustrious plots producing wines such as ‘La Doriane’ in Condrieu, the famous growths of the Côte-Rôtie ‘La Mouline’, ‘La Turque’ and ‘La Landonne’, Côte-Rôtie Château d’Ampuis, Hermitage ‘Ex-Voto’, produced only in the great vintages and Saint-Joseph ‘Lieu-Dit Saint-Joseph’ in red and white, as well as the famous Saint-Joseph red 'Vignes de l’Hospice'. These wines have each become flagships of their appellations. 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. This red is a lot more approachable in terms of price than most of the Guigal stable. But the quality is still high.

Tasting Notes:

Eye: Straw yellow with golden tints. Nose: Very complex with oaky floral notes.Hazlenuts and yellow fruit. Palate: Very full-bodied attack. Fleshy fruit and round palate. Overall: A balanced palate with complex aromas and a roundness which is very characteristic of this Saint-Joseph which comes from the best terroirs of the appellation.
