19 July 2018 News

The E. Guigal 2015 Saint-Joseph Rouge was featured in Brian Freedman’s Forbes.com column “Wines of The Week: Syrah And Viognier For The Summer,” just in time to inspire our weekend wine purchases! Brian selected the Saint-Joseph Rouge from E. Guigal as the red Wine of the Week, which he called “one of the most instantly recognizable names of the Rhone Valley.” He described the Saint-Joseph as having “generous fruit complicated by the quintessentially savory notes of floral peppercorn and serious minerality.” In addition, Brian noted that the wine “shows an appealing mix of cherry, plum, fig cake, and star anise, all of it cut through with mouthwatering acidity that allows the subtly smoky finish to linger.” Read the full story here.

As he continues to discuss some of the specific expressions within the portfolio, he praises the 2015 E. Guigal Crozes-Hermitage ($22) as “a hell of a lot of wine for just over a Jackson.” You can read the full story here.
