Als der Vater von Marcel Guigal 1946 das heute zu den beudeutendsten Weingütern der Rhone
gehörende Unternehmen gründete, konnte er nicht ahnen, dass für seine spektakulären Crus der
Cote Rotie  einmal Preise wie für die Premiers Grand Crus Classes aus Bordeaux bezahlt werden
und die Nachfrage immer größer ist als die vorhandene Menge. Die Palette von Marcel und Philippe
Guigal besteht jedoch nicht nur aus den unbezahlbaren, raren Crus, sondern vor allem auch aus
köstlichen Weinen aus allen Appellationen der Rhone.

E. Guigal 2015 Gigondas

89-92 Parker Punkte für 2013

Jeb Dunnuck Dez. 2015
Still not yet bottled. the 2012 Gigondas showed considerably better this go around and I’m confident it will end up being an outstanding wine. Made from 75% Grenache and 25% Mourvèdre. it offers impressive ripeness in its smoked herbs. garrigue. olive and pepper-laced Grenache fruit. Medium to full-bodied. nicely concentrated and even sexy. it will drink nicely on release and evolve gracefully over the following decade or more.

One of the highlight tastings during my two weeks spent working in the northern Rhône was with Philippe and Marcel Guigal. who in this critic’s opinion. consistently fashion some of the greatest wines in the world. Looking at the 2011 Côte Rôties. which were bottled earlier this year. these are gorgeous wines that show the perfumed. sexy nature of the vintage; yet. they have more density. concentration and depth than just about every other wine from the vintage. Marcel characterized the vintage as charming and elegant. and while they’re insanely good even today. they’ll evolve gracefully and have broad drink windows. The 2012s should be bottled next year and this is another terrific vintage at this estate. which shouldn’t be a shock to anyone who follows the estate. The wines are already expressive. yet have more fat and texture than the 2011s. although maybe not the same level of focus or length. I suspect this is another vintage that will show nicely on release next year and age gracefully. with broad drink windows. The 2013s. in contrast. are inky. masculine. structured and not very much fun to taste at the moment. The extended elevage will help. but these will certainly be longer term prospects that will demand cellaring.

E.Guigal Cotes du Rhone 2017
89-91 Punkte vom Wine Advocate für den E.Guigal Cotes du Rhone 2016Verkostungsnotiz von Joe Czerwinski vom 29. Dezember 2017:

At the moment. the 2016 Cotes du Rhone is more complex than the impressive 2015. offering up hints of plum. cassis and mulberry as well as savory notes of leather and spice. It looks like back-to-back winning vintages for this workhorse cuvée.

E.Guigal Crozes Hermitage 2018

90-92 Parker Punkte90-92 Punkte vom Wine Advocate / Robert Parker für den Guigal Crozes Hermitage 2018!
Verkostungsnotiz von Joe Czerwinski vom 19. Dezember 2019:
Tasted against the 2016 and 2017, Guigal's 2018 Crozes Hermitage reveals another level of ripeness and plushness. It's full-bodied, maybe even a little jammy (not a problem at this youthful stage of its evolution), without being heavy or overdone.

Im Glas zeigt sich der E. Guigal Crozes Hermitage 2018 in einem dunklen, tiefen Rot. Rote Früchte, Kirschen und auch Erdbeeren, sowie schwarze Johannisbeeren betören die Nase. Dazu auch Eichenaromen, Vanille. Am Gaumen ein strukturierter Wein von bemerkenswerter Frische und raffinierten Tanninen, der den ganzen Charme und die Würze des Syrah präsentiert.
