COTE ROTIE, COTE BRUNE, HOMMAGE A ETIENNE GUIGAL 1990 GUIGAL
Côte Rôtie, Côte Brune, Hommage à Etienne Guigal 1990 Guigal
In 1984 Marcel Guigal purchased J. Vidal-Fleury which included the Côte Rôtie vineyards of Le Clos and La Chatillonne in the Côte Blonde and La Turque and La Pommière in the Côte Brune. Of these vineyards, only La Turque has been vinfied and marketed separately. However, as a tribute to his late father, Etienne Guigal, the 1990 vintage from the La Pommière vineyard was vinified apart in a large wooden foudre with a carving of Etienne on the outside that will be familiar to visitors to Ampuis. Bottled only in magnum (a first for Guigal), just 60 cases of this wine were imported into the US.
