Among Guigal's signature wines are those of Côte-Rôtie, an appellation that represents the very essence of Domaine. Côte-Rôtie is famous for its steeply terraced vineyards, schist soils and continental climate. The resulting red wines are elegant, powerful and complex.

Description E. Guigal Château d'Ampuis 2018.

La robe is a magnificent brilliant ruby red with brick-colored highlights.

The nose, expressive and captivating, transports us into a dimension dominated by fruity notes of cherry, plum but also crushed strawberry.

After a few minutes, a hint of smokiness arrives, as well as notes of baking and blond tobacco, which underline the whole and add complexity.

The palate is supple on the attack and evolves on a very silky texture.

The tannins, with their powdery texture, give way to a finish carried on black fruits and spices.
