This is the biggest appellation in the Northern Rhône and the wines are made entirely of Syrah. The reds are softer and fruitier than Hermitage because the soils are richer. Guigal mature this wine for a lengthy 18 months. A dark deep red colour. Red fruits cherries and strawberry with oak dominate the aroma.
The palate delivers refined tannin yet it still delivers a remarkable freshness of red fruit character combined with the spicy pepper of the Syrah grape.
Serve with a variety of Meats mainly red meats and hearty casseroles.
