Vignes de l'Hospice is a tiny very steep monopole vineyard with a little tower on a big bed of granite. It is owned by the local hospice who lease the land to Guigal who with their mastery produce this fantastic and very interesting wine on it.

This is a charming wine with a very long finish, and one that can be described as a hidden gem. Snap this up as not only is it delicious now but it will also age fantastically, giving you endless pleasure whenever you reach for a bottle. The granite terroir influences the wine heavily giving us an almost wet stone granite freshness to the other fantastic flavours of charcoal, crushed violets, cassis, blackberry and chocolate.

E.Guigal

When Etienne Guigal first arrived at the tiny village of Ampuis, he was totally captivated by both the beauty of the region and the quality of the wines. At just 14, he began to work in the vineyards for Vidal-Fleury, at the very centre of the Côte-Rôtie appellation, which have been deservedly famous for 2,400 years. He left to found the Giugal Estate in 1946 and which with his enormous talent he built into a huge success, eventually buying Vidal-Fleury the company he had started out with. A true rags to riches story!

Now in the third generation of the Giugal family, the estate now owns some of the finest vineyards in Côte-Rôtie. On land originally planted by the Romans, Guigal’s light-touch approach to viniculture allows them to maximise their land, which can be considered amongst the finest terroir in France.
