Guigal: 1987-2009
La Mouline, La Turque,
Hommage á Etienne,
D'Ampuis & Ex Voto

It's rare that I get to offer a collection of Guigal like this.

For many decades, Guigal has been one of the loudest, most defining voices of the Northern Rhône, especially Côte-Rôtie.

Guigal's wines are the ultimate Rhône blue chip collectibles. For those who've tasted them the explanation is clear: Guigal produces some of the most deeply complex, most stylish and longest lived examples of Syrah out there.

I'm happy to offer an assortment of Guigal spanning two decades.

The wines offered today represent the high end of the Guigal range very well. There's everything from Côte-Rôtie D'Ampuis and Hermitage Ex Voto to La Mouline and La Turque to the ultimate of rarities, 2005 Côte-Rôtie Hommage á Etienne La Pommiere, a wine that's only been made in two vintage and is only bottled in miniscule quantities in magnum.

All of the vintages offered are very strong ones for Guigal. Whether it's uniformly great vintages like '09, '05 and '88 or a vintage like '87 where the overall quality is good, but the wines that Guigal produced were absolutely superb. A vintage like '87 is a testimony to Guigal's skill and dedication. Most importantly the 87s are just stunning.

Please check out the full list below. You'll notice that quantities are extremely limited. I'm going to cut this short not to fan the fire. These are wines that speak for themselves anyway.

Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.
