2nd December 2016 News

An article on the 2015 vintage in the Rhone Valley by Jancis Robinson was just published in the Financial Times.  The piece starts aptly: “Marcel Guigal is the godfather of the Rhone Valley.  His company in Ampuis uniquely combines quantity and quality in both its own holdings and massive purchases throughout the valley.”  Marcel and Philippe Guigal are quoted throughout, and in the shortlist of very top 2015s, Guigal has more than twice as many wines as any other producer. Below is an excerpt. Click here to read the full article!

“Marcel Guigal is the godfather of the Rhône Valley. His company in Ampuis uniquely combines quantity (to the tune of more than seven million bottles a year) and quality in both its own holdings and massive purchases throughout the valley. For him 2015 was the best vintage he has ever known, in a career that began in 1961 – that was a far from shabby vintage itself.”
