LVT 2020 wh 2019 r 2020 rosé A world famous winery. Marcel Guigal is the hardest working man I have ever met, and all expansion achieved has been through that amazing work ethic, and inner tenacity. He has always followed a new oak, long ageing route for the red wines. The Guigal reds are always sumptuous and full, and live well. The most elegant of the Côte-Rôtie La Las is La Mouline, with the Landonne often the champion of the Big Three in a given vintage. The Côte-Rôtie Château d'Ampuis is always good quality, and can be better value than the La Las, which attract speculation. There is a very rich style of Condrieu. The Guigals have been upping the quality at Hermitage, helped by the purchase of vineyards.

There is very reliable quality in the large production wines like the southern Rhône Côtes du Rhône - the 2014 red was an absolutely excellent ****(*) wine, remarkable given it is more than 2 million bottles' worth. In July 2017 came the purchase of the 53 hectare Domaine de Nalys - since renamed Château de Nalys - which possesses some of the best terroirs at Châteauneuf-du-Pape, from the Groupama Insurance company.
