As usual, the 2015 Cotes du Rhone features a majority of Syrah, largely sourced from the western side of the Rhône. Spicy, peppery, hickory aromas lead off, adding berries up front and then moving into darker fruit and more savory notes of black olive by the finish. This medium to full-bodied wine finishes long and silky, avoiding any of the vintage's hard tannins, while still boasting the concentration to drink well through at least 2023.
The Domaine was founded by Etienne Guigal in 1946, located in the ancient Village of Ampuis. Some of their vineyards go back 2400 years and there are still some terraced walls in evidence from the Roman era. The soil is of limestone and clay. To quote Robert Parker "There is no wine maker on planet earth who has produced so many compelling wines."
