After describing his recent tasting of Guigal in North Carolina’s Winston-Salem Journal newspaper, wine writer Michael Hastings followed up with a secondary “Wine of the Week” feature. We are thrilled that he selected the Guigal 2015 Cotes du Rhone Rouge as his wine pick of the week, describing the wine as a “reliable, easy-drinking Cotes du Rhone,” with “cherry, blackberry, pepper and foresty herbs on the palate.” The full review and description can be found in his “Recently Tasted Wines” story here and “Wine of the Week” story here
Cotes du Rhone
Given that this particular wine can be the introduction to the entire Rhône Valley for a drinker, as well as the position they occupy in the Rhône, it is not enough for the Guigals to make a good Côtes du Rhône. They are relentlessly driven to produce a distinctive and outstanding wine that drives interest in exploring the entirety of the Rhône.

The more you learn about the Guigal 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.
