Get to Know This Product

Etienne Guigal began working with Rhone producers at the age of 14 as a vineyard hand, eventually rising to the role of cellar master before he was 30. In the wake of World War II, he started his own domaine that would become a benchmark for the Rhone Valley around the world.

Now in its third generation, Guigal continues to produce some of the finest examples Rhone blends. This 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape is a classic blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah and 5% other permitted varieties, all aged in foudres for three years. With dried spices, stone fruit and red raspberries on the nose, it's medium to full-bodied on the palate, with a rich, velvety feel and a dusting of tannins on the long finish.  This is drinking beautifully now, but has a long life ahead of it if you have the patience to cellar it.
