E. Guigal - Chateauneuf-du-Pape (750mL)
Overview: The impact and influence of the Guigal family across the Rhône Valley, France, and all the world of fine wine is so immense, it’s sometimes difficult to remember that it’s all happened so quickly. In a country with such a rich and deep wine history, the Guigal family’s story is only in its third generation. The more you learn about the family, the more astounding becomes their story. Their wines are the benchmarks for every Rhone appellation, and over the last thirty years they have become arguably the most lauded producer in the world. Year after year the Guigal family produces wines of exceptional quality that in all classes offer exceptional value.
Tasting Notes: A deep, dark and dense red color. The nose is full of spice and red berries – even notes of jam. On the palate, the wine is complex and powerful, with round tannins and notes of ripe plum, peppery herbs and cherry stone. Overall, an ample, rich wine that manages to maintain purity.
Pairing: Cassoulet with Duck Confit, Steak Florentine
