Vintage after vintage, the Collection wines have become symbols which perfectly illustrate the family’s ethos of supreme quality. Careful ageing, together with the meticulous attention paid every day by Marcel and Philippe Guigal to the selection and blending processes, bring to the fore the consistency and excellence of the great appellations of the Rhône Valley
JEB DUNNUCK 92 - 94 Points
From one of the great vintages for the region going back decades, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape boasts a deep, layered, powerful style yet has terrific purity and elegance. Notes of black raspberries, scorched earth, and peppery herbs all emerge from this promising, seriously endowed barrel sample that’s going to be well worth your time and money.
WINE ADVOCATE 92 - 94 Points
Full-bodied, lush, velvety in texture and packed with fruit and garrigue, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape should prove to be Guigal’s best Chateauneuf du Pape to date when it’s released in 2020.
WINE SPECTATOR - 91pts
Solidly built, featuring cherry and plum paste notes, laced with stony minerality, tobacco and garrigue accents. This has grip but remains well-integrated, ending with subtle persistence on the cedar-tinged finish. Best from 2020 through 2030. 3,500 cases imported. — JM
