The grape varieties Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre unite in the cuvée of this dark red wine. The vines thrive on varied soil. Limestone, granite, pebbles and alluvial land determine the overall picture. The vines are on average 35 years old. After a careful and selective harvest, the winegrowers ferment the Guigal Côtes du Rhône Rouge traditionally at a controlled temperature. The wine stays on the skins for a long time and thus gains color and taste. Before being bottled, the Guigal Côtes du Rhône Rouge matures in oak barrels for a year and a half.
