Guigal Saint Joseph Rouge 2017
A land with 24 centuries of history behind it, worked and preserved by three generations of winemakers with family values at their core and a commitment to an illustrious terrain that produces prestigious wines. This, in a nutshell, is the Maison Guigal. Right from the beginning the motto, “No Pains No Gains” underpins the promise made to Etienne Guigal. A commitment to work together to follow in his footsteps, to communicate the family’s passion and create so many emotions.
Filled with red fruit aromas and elegant tannins, this wine is a fine expression of the Syrah and the up-and-coming appellation of Saint Joseph from the northern Rhône.
This Syrah carries a powerful nose dominated by red berries and delicate oak aromas. Hints of crushed stone on the nose, alongside ripe cherries and raspberries. It's medium to full-bodied, even a touch jammy on the mid-palate, then turns crisp and focused on the finish.
Syrah and char grilled red meat are a match made in heaven!
