Lucien Le Moine Corton Renardes Grand Cru 2016

Corton Renardes Grand Cru

Corton Renardes displays the sweet side of Corton, as opposed to Corton Bressandes. It has more viscosity, more tannin, color and sweetness than Bressandes. It is both an easier wine to understand that Corton Bresandes, and more immediately attractive.

Vinous Media “Bright ruby-red color. Distinctly wild aromas and flavors of black raspberry, game birds and animal fur. Plush, dense and fine-grained, showing more early personality than the Bressandes despite the fact…

Saint Joseph Vignes de l’Hospice 2017

Saint-Joseph

Guigal’s Vignes de l’Hospice is one of the finest sites in the Northern Rhone Valley. This steeply terraced vineyard used to be divided into three, but Guigal now owns majority of this parcel in order to restore perception of Saint-Joseph as an appellation of utmost quality. In fact, Guigal is often asked when they will produce a fourth “LaLa,” and their response is that their fourth single vineyard phenomenon of the Northern Rhone is already being produced: the Vignes de l’Hospice.

Wine Advocate "Marked by scents of tar and black olives, cedar and clove, blackberries and cassis, the 2017 Saint-Joseph Vignes de l'Hospice is the most complex, structured and age worthy of the…

Wine & Spirits Magazine "The Guigals never intended to buy land in St-Joseph, until they saw the parcels that Jean-Louis Grippat was offering them upon his retirement: The vines in Vignes de l’Hospice occupy…

Wine Spectator "A polished and toasty style, with vanilla bean and signed mesquite accents draped over a core of very substantial dark cherry and plum fruit. Fruitcake and licorice frame the finish,…

Jeb Dunnuck "I loved the 2017 Saint Joseph Vignes De L'Hospice from barrel and it doesn't disappoint from bottle. Revealing a deep ruby/plum color as well as spicy, exotic notes of crème…

Wine Spectator “Solid, with an alluring core of lightly steeped plum, anise, blackberry and boysenberry flavors that rolls through, picking up dark tea and warm fruitcake hints along the way. Shows a…
