Château d'Ampuis 2014: concentrated and muscular

Consisting of Syrah (93%) and Viognier (7%), Château Côte Rôtie Ampuis 2014 Guigal area is a true treasure from vines already planted in the sixteenth century. Vinified in stainless steel, it has a unique breeding of 38 months in new oak barrels. Visually, it is adorned with a dark and deep color that appear purple reflections. The nose is an elegant wine that unfolds. Spices jump nose, accompanied by beautiful black fruits ripe, and some delicate touches of oak. On the palate the wine is concentrated and muscular. Candied fruits such as plum and blackberry passionately intermingle with aromas of vanilla. The tannins are tight, solid, but melted and softened by prolonged breeding undergrowth.

E. Guigal Château D'Ampuis 2011

We paired it with meat but I would have prefered to pair it with another dish. I usually preserve E. Guigal Château D'Ampuis for special people.
Cherry colour, low layer. First of all, you'll perceive a raspberry flavour. Very soft.

The Guigal Estate was founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal in Ampuis, a small ancient village and cradle of the Côte-Rôtie appellation. It shelters a unique vineyard where the vines and the wines have been famous for 2, 400 years. Arriving in 1924 at 14 years old, the founder vinfied 67 harvests in Côte-Rôtie and, at the beginning of his career, took part in the development of Vidal-Fleury establishment.

The Domaine Guigal is at Ampuis, was established in 1946 by Etienne Guigal, followed by the direction of his son Marcel with his wife Bernadette, now joined by his son Philippe and his wife Eve. Marcel Guigal is a member of the Institut National des Appelations of Origin in 1990 and was awarded the Legion d'Honneur for the merits acquired in the wine world. The headquarters of the cellar at the Château d'Ampuis - castle of Roman origin later rebuilt and lived by nobles and kings of France - acquired by the family in 1995 and saved from the ruins thanks to a meticulous renovation. Always at the Château d'Ampuis it is headquartered private tonnellerie, which allows Guigal to run through this craft and ancestral work an additional technical control over the quality, seasoning and toasting of the wood used for the aging of its wines. The production takes place instead in the cellars of the old center of the village of Ampuis, the ideal place for the vinification and aging due to its constant temperature throughout the year. Guigal has very prestigious vineyards and draws in part to the grape market, thus producing wines both belonging to the northern denominations and to those of the southern Rhone Valley, namely: Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, Saint-Joseph, Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Tavel and Côtes-du-Rhône

E. Guigal Château D'Ampuis 2011

Visual: dark and deep color. Purple reflections. Nose: Spices, black fruits and delicate oak aromas. The nose is dense, expressive and intense. Palate: tannic and thoroughbred wine. Aromas of prunes, blackberries and vanilla. Powerful mouth, concentrated and structured. Set: wine made of a muscular and tannic vintage wrought by a warm climate. The tannins are very strong but softened by a long oak maturation.

The Guigal Estate was founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal in Ampuis, and taken over by Marcel, his son, in 1961. This family business prospers each generation, and is nowadays famous all around the world for their high-quality wines. Philippe, Marcel's son, manages the vineyards since 1975 with its wife Eve, and they have vines in famous plots such as La Dorianne in Condrieu, La Turque, La Mouline or La Landonne in Côte-Rôtie.

Hue : deep and dark, with purple tints
Nose : very expressive, with a hint of ripe fruits and oaky fragrances.
Palate : this wine has a great distinction, it develops flavors of vanilla and prunes. The mid-palate is structured and tannic, with a very good potential of ageing !


Drink or keep: 2014 - 2022Delicious with: Red meat, game, cheese

Cherry red, clean colour. Toffee notes can be appreciated.The 2015 tastes a little bit oily in the mouth.
This E. Guigal Château d'Ampuis does not need food to accompany.
I drank this 2015 with my co-workers.

To drink in good company.
The reddish brown edges were not very nice. Definitely the wrong colour, although it was an acceptable wine. The smell of violets, cherry and licorice was noticeable. A Côte-Rôtie with a very good acidity.
It would have been better with meat.

Château D'Ampuis Côte Rotie 2012
I bought Château D'Ampuis Côte Rotie at Uvinum.
Cherry blossom colour, nearly opaque. Delicious aromas of berries. It reminded me of liquorice.

It pairs well with appetizers. I opened a bottle for a good friend.
A really tasteful wine of red ruby colour. Good smell of coffee and toffee. Fruity, yet airy on the palate.
