Today we are offering Guigal's 2019 single-vineyard Cote Roties.

"Guigal's Cote Roties, particularly the single vineyard wines, are exceptional wines. They offer extraordinary flavor intensity, impeccable purity, and awesome length and complexity. The yields from the three vineyards - La Mouline, La Landonne, and La Turque - rarely exceed two tons per acre...While all three wines share phenomenal concentration and marvelous perfumes, they could not be more different. I do not think anyone can adequately articulate the multitude of aromas of flavors they possess.” - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

These wines consistently rank among the world’s best.  Only 400 - 500 cases of each is made per vintage, and they typically disappear into collectors’ cellars.

As young wines, they exhibit rich and powerful characteristics. La Mouline may have softer tannins, La Turque more exotic spices and La Landonne more density, but when they reach 15 -25 years of age, they begin to show their full personalities.

Courtier's general comments on Guigal's Cote Roties are attached along with a producer profile from Neal Martin.

Limited quantities. Balanced orders will be given preference.


Guigal Cote Rotie La Turque 2019
$439 per bottle
(98-100) points Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate: "The extroverted 2019 Cote Rotie La Turque is about as impressive a young wine as I've tasted at Guigal, with extravagant, blossom-like aromas and oodles of cassis and blueberries. Full-bodied, it's simultaneously concentrated and rich yet airy and almost weightless, an outrageous juxtaposition of characters that must be tasted to be understood."

Guigal Cote Rotie La Landonne 2019

$439 per bottle
(98-100) points Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate: "The impenetrably dark 2019 Cote Rotie La Landonne represents the essence of this fabled lieu-dit, combining peppery, herbal notions with espresso and roasted meat, all carried by ample plum and black cherry fruit. It's full-bodied, concentrated, richly tannic and long on the finish—simply a superb wine that should be flirting with perfection when it is released in a couple of years."

Guigal Cote Rotie La Mouline 2019

$420 per bottle
(96-98) points Josh Raynolds, Vinous: "Bright, highly perfumed blueberry, black raspberry, violet and exotic spice aromas, along with a wild touch of blood orange. Juicy and lithe on the palate, offering intense red and blue fruit flavors that stain the palate while showing little in the way of excess weight. Finishes extremely long and sweet, with a building floral note, even tannins and a late jolt of five-spice powder."
