and with 24 centuries of history behind it, worked and preserved by three generations of winemakers with family values at their core and a commitment to an illustrious terrain that produces prestigious wines. This, in a nutshell, is the Maison Guigal. Right from the beginning the motto, "No Pains No Gains" underpins the promise made to founder Etienne Guigal. A commitment to work together to follow in his footsteps, to communicate the family's passion and create so many emotions. Today, Marcel and Philippe, along with their wives, are the guardians of this exceptional domain which combines history, devotion and a sense of togetherness. A breath of inspiration for generations to come.

Purple red in colour. Intense nose dominated by peach and apricot with liquorice and notes of undergrowth. Generous, powerful and full-bodied with a long elegant finish. A frank attack, racy with soft tannic structure.

4/5

Cherry colour. The smell of violets was so strong that it seemed curious to me.A very nice bodied wine.
We had it with a bean stew and it was a fantastic combination (although I hadn't thought it at the beginning).
I drank with my best friend.

4/5

We tasted this wine at a wine tasting.
An intense red colour. The main aromas were coffee and wood. Flavours are well balanced.
I decided not to pair it with any dish.

We drank this wine with friends.
Opaque red. Fantastic smell of roses. I noticed a kind of salty aftertaste in the finish.
We paired it with a wide range of tapas.
