The Guigal Condrieu Doriane is a very limited exclusive wine. The wine is vinified exclusively in small wooden barrels, specially developed for this wine. The Dorina matures for 9 months in new French oak. E.Guigal 'La Doriana' Condrieu is a 100% viognier cuvée from several separate parcels. The soil of the Côte Chatillon plot (1 ha) consists of slate and limestone. The plot in Colombier (1 ha) contains a lot of granite and sandstone. On the Volan plot in St Pierre de Boeuf (1 ha), the soil contains granite and iron oxide. Grapes from the Coteau de Chéry plot (0.5 ha) were also used for the 2014 vintage. The many different terroirs give the wine depth. The average age of the grapes is 35 years. This single grape viognier underwent malolactic fermentation and then matured for 8 months in new wooden barrels. The wine smells of white flowers and peach and mandarin and bitter citrus fruits. The taste palette is fresh, round, rich and full of flavor. The wine is medium to full-bodied, very pure and elegant with great depth and lively acidity. In one word, fantastic and always high in the 90+ points

Vineyard for 2022 E. Guigal Condrieu Doriane

Maison E. Guigal is a winery with a great reputation. The company was founded in 1946 and is now three generations old. Founder Etienne Guigal strongly determined the current identity of this producer. Before setting up his own winery he collected his first experiences with the producer Vidal-Fleury. Marcel Guigal and his son Philippe are now in charge of the company. The latter is responsible for winemaking and thus follows in the footsteps of his grandfather, who experienced no fewer than 67 vintages.

Guigal is located in Ampuis, just 38 km south of Lyon. Here it has 60 hectares of land in the Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, Châteauneuf du Pape, Tavel and Gigondas appellations. The Guigals are now also the owners of Domaine de Bonserine and Vidal Fleury. Since 1995, Guigal has managed the company from the famous Château d'Ampuis. This castle dates from the 12th century and was rebuilt in the Renaissance style in the 16th century.

The wine magazine Decanter named Marcel Guigal in 2006 "Man of the year." Renowned wine guide Guide Hachette takes it one step further and calls Guigal "the best winemaker in the world." Robert Parker also has deep respect for Guigal. The top wines of this producer regularly receive the highest score of 100 points. The 'La La' wines are special. These come from the 3 top locations 'La Turque', 'La Landonne', and 'La Moulin'.
