Within the Rhone, there is probably nobody quite as well known for quality and excellence as Etienne Guigal. The winery is easily one of the most recognizable, with their single-vineyard Côte-Rôties fetching nearly $1,000/btl and always receiving massive scores.
They also have some great values in their portfolio, whether it be a CDR, a Gigondas, or today’s wine, a lights out, highly scored CDR Rose.
The Guigals weren’t one of those who hopped on the Rose train either – they’ve been making serious dry pink wines since the 1940s, and a lot of their work with Roses has helped carry the category for years and years.
In the 2020 vintage, they made a particularly expressive Rose – a racy little dry number with notes of raspberry, citrus and macerated cherries with good balance and an abundance of freshness. It’s a 70% Grenache, 20% Cinsault, 10% Syrah blend that’s pretty typical for the Rhone, and like most wines made at Guigal it has a 90+ review to accompany the release.

90 Points, Wine Enthusiast
Raspberry and bramble notes are delicate on the nose but intensify on the palate of this juicy, watermelon-kissed wine. A deep salmon-pink in color, it’s a full-bodied but refreshing dry wine that finishes on a lingering note of sour-cherry pastille.
