Wine information: The Guigal domain was founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal in the village of Ampuis. His son, Marcel, took over from his father in 1961. The Guigal family owns vineyards in Condrieu and in the Côte-Rôtie with illustrious plots in many famous appellations. The wines are made and aged at 12th century Chateau d’Ampuis located in the northern Rhone. In the summer of 2003, in an effort to improve quality and control over all aspects of wine making, Guigal opened an onsite cooperage. The cooperage at the Château d’Ampuis works in partnership with the cooperage at Chagny managed by Seguin Moreau. Guigal Luminscence Condrieu is 100% Viognier from 35 year old vines. Harvest took place very early on the 21st August when the potential degree of alcohol was estimated at over 18.4% - this early harvest leads to a high residual sugar content. Fermentation stopped naturally at 15% alcohol with 55 g/l residual sugar. This wine is the result of extraordinary vintage conditions.

Reviews: "Beautiful dried peach, apricot and pear fruit flavors, with additional notes of quince, anise and minerals. Combines the sweet fruit character of a late-harvest wine with the structure and minerality of a dry wine to give a unique experience" - 93 - Wine Spectator Insider December 15th, 2004.
