The Story

Guigal is synonymous with the Côte-Rôtie area, for bringing this great wine region to prominence, and for owning three times as much land as next largest land-owner, vinifiying 1/3 of the total appellation, and unquestionably holding the finest sites in this tiny, special area.  The incredible Syrah from Côte Rôtie, co-fermented with a touch of Viognier, has tremendously balanced concentration, depth and finesse.  

 

Côte-Rôtie is situated in the northernmost region of the Rhône Valley. The Syrah (96%) vine is planted on steep terraced hillsides that catch and focus the sun’s heat, giving the region its reputation and name: "roasted slope." A small percentage of Viognier (4%) is interplanted with the Syrah, and the two are harvested and fermented together, giving the wine more elegance and lightness. The Côte-Rôtie Brune et Blonde de Guigal refers to the fact that grapes from the two areas of Côte-Rôtie are used, from the Côte Brune and the Côte Blonde.  The historical legend is that long ago a lord deeded the Côte Brune to his dark-haired daughter and the Côte Blonde to his blond daughter.  The soils of the Côte Brune are indeed darker, containing more iron and some clay, and the paler Côte Blonde soils have more sand and limestone, and are the home of more Viognier plantings.  

 

Guigal’s Côte-Rôtie Brune et Blonde is a wine of finesse and complexity that ages beautifully, developing aromas and flavors of black pepper, spice, licorice, and game. It is a truly great expression of Cote-Rotie.

Written Notes

I always love the Brune et Blonde cuvée from Guigal, and their 2019 is no exception. The 2019 Côte Rôtie Brune Et Blonde is certainly the most approachable and ready-to-go of the Côte Rôties and has a pretty, classic nose of red and black raspberries, ground pepper, and spice, with some meaty nuances. It's medium to full-bodied, balanced, and just incredibly satisfying. Drink bottles over the coming 10-15 years.

Good looking normal size bottle. Colour is purple and medium. On the nose it is youthful, refined, complex, pure and charming. The taste is refined, focused, elegant,robust, with silky tannins, and average in acidity, full-bodied, with balanced, well-integrated structure and youthful. On the palate it is layered and has floral, spice, pepper, blackcurrant and raspberry flavours. The finish is long, vibrant, flavorful and lingering. This wine is sophisticated. Perfectly stored bottles are still very worthy and will last well for another 10-15 years and decant at least 2h before tasting.
