E.Guigal is now run by Etienne's son, Marcel Guigal, who was voted Decanter 'Man of the Year 2006' for contributions to wine production in the Rhône. Robert Parker is a long-term advocate, "As I have written many times before, no one in the world is better at 'raising' a wine than Marcel Guigal... In the past 26 years I have spent visiting wineries and vignerons, I have never seen a producer so fanatical about quality." As is Jeb Dunnuck, "Philippe and Marcel Guigal... consistently fashion some of the greatest wines in the world." To support this, Guigal has received more 100 points for red wines from The Wine Advocate than any other wine producer in the world and holds the title for joint-highest including whites (with Chapoutier).

Praise is far from limited to Parker and Dunnuck; Jancis Robinson has also proclaimed, "One man, Marcel Guigal, is chiefly responsible for the recent renaissance of this zone."

"La Las"

The top three wines from Guigal are referred to as 'La Las': La Mouline, La Landonne and La Turque, which the Wine Cellar Insider described as being "...one of the few phenomenally expensive wines that's worth the money"

No less than 27 of these three wines currently hold 100 points - with two more tipped for 100 in due course - and on seven occasions, all three wines have scored perfectly: 1985, 1988, 1999, 2003, 2005, 2009 and 2010.

La Mouline 2012

  • £1,062.50 per 6x75cl
  • (96-98) points
    La Mouline has achieved 11 x 100pts in total
  • Average 500 cases produced pa
  • Average 10 year performance of mature vintages 82.8%
    (see chart below, 1990-2002)
"Possessing slightly more purity (but maybe not the complexity) than the 2011, the 2012 Cote Rotie la Mouline offers a heavenly perfume of cured meats, pecking duck, violets and cassis. This flows to a full-bodied, seamless, absolutely hedonistic Cote Rotie that has good acidity, ripe, polished tannin and a great finish. Of the three single parcel Cote Roties, it's the most approachable, but will still drink beautifully for three decades or more."

La Landonne 2012

  • £1,062.50 per 6x75cl
  • (97-99) points
    La Landonne has achieved 9 x 100pts in total
  • Average 900 cases produced pa
  • Average 10 year performance of mature vintages 80.4%
    (see chart below, 1990-2002)
"Another massive, thick and unctuously textured beauty is the 2012 Cote Rotie la Landonne. Always the most structured and tannic of the three single vineyard releases, in this case, the wine's wealth of fruit and texture almost completely hide its tannic grip and underlying structure. Offering sensational notes of cassis, caramelized meats, spice box and crushed rocks, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, masses of perfectly ripe tannin and a surprisingly sexy, hard to resist profile. Nevertheless, give it 7-8 years in the cellar and enjoy this beauty through 2047."

La Turque 2012

  • £1,062.50 per 6x75cl
  • (96-98) points
    La Turque has achieved 7 x 100pts in total
  • Average 300 cases produced pa
  • Average 10 year performance of mature vintages 67.7%
    (see chart below, 1990-2002)
"Taking longer to develop in the glass than the exuberant and sexy la Mouline, the 2012 Cote Rotie la Turque (93% Syrah and 7% Viognier that will see four years in new oak) offers Bordeaux-like notes of lead pencil and graphite to go with olive, smoked herbs, pepper and ripe dark fruits. Possessing a touch less raw material than both the 2009 and 2010, it nevertheless has full-bodied richness, serious mid-palate depth, lots of sweet tannin and a fabulous finish. It will need 4-6 years of cellaring and drink well over the following two to three decades."

Summary Points

  • Consistent 10 year performance aided by high scores and low production.
  • Offers diversification in a broadening market.
  • Under-valued vintage for the quality of wines from the top producers.
  • Guigal - one of the top 25 brands according to Liv-ex Power 100 in December 2015.
  • Minimum 5 year hold.
We only have a modest allocation at UK market best and would therefore encourage our client base to contact their portfolio manager to secure this highly attractive option.
