Special notes

Aged for 42 months in new oak barrels. The Guigal domain resides in Condrieu and Côte-Rôtie with illustrious plots that produce "La Doriane" in Condrieu, the famous Côte-Rôtie Crus "La Mouline", "La Turque" and "La Landonne" from the Château d'Ampuis. L'Ermitage "Ex-Voto" is produced in the larger vintages while the Saint-Joseph "Lieu-Dit Saint-Joseph", in white and red along with the famous Saint-Joseph red "Vignes de l'Hospice" are the real references for this appellation. The Guigal domain vinifies and matures the northern Rhone Valley appellation wines in their Ampuis cellars, namely Côte Rôtie, Condrieu, Hermitage, Saint-Joseph andCrozes-Hermitage. The maturing of the larger southern appellations Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Tavel and Cotes du Rhone are alsoundertaken in the Ampuis cellars.
