Guigal La La's - 2018 Cotie-Rotie
The Perennial Giants
As a wine collector the name Guigal strikes a cord of longevity and power - especially when it comes to the famed single vineyard Cote-Roties dubbed the La La's.
These are epic wines that are complex, powerful and ready to stand the test of time. Some of the most famous and awarded Cote-Roties the La La's are benchmarks of the region that are towering wines that can transcend a vintage and excel even in the most difficult of years. As expected the Guigal 2018s are some of the finest of the year, making it look like a general exceptional vintage overall. That is the beauty of Guigal's holdings along Cote-Rotie and why La Turque. La Mouline and La Landonne are without question three of the most sought after and coveted wines amongst the world.
How the wine press commonly refers to these reference point Cote-Roties:
"...one of those seemingly immortal Côte Rôties that will continue drinking brilliantly for longer than most of us will be around."
"This reference point estate was created in 1946 by Etienne Guigal and has been one of the world’s greatest wine estates for over seven decades now."
" ...bastion of strength and power..."
