A unique chance

Bid for Wine is delighted to give a preview of one of the star lots in its launch sale, a magnum of 2005 Côte Rôtie ‘Hommage á Etienne Guigal’, an unreleased private bottling from the famous Guigal Family and the only bottle to have come on to the open market.

This wine has been produced 3 times only:
-In 1989 following the death of Etienne Guigal.
-In 1990 for family special events (poured at the Legion d’Honneur of Marcel Guigal). Bottled in magnums only.
-In 2005 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Chateau d’Ampuis wine. Bottled in magnums only.

Two barrels of this wine were made from fruit sourced from 2 of the Guigal family’s exceptional terroirs on the Côte Rôtie (including La Pòmmiere, planted in the early 1920’s). The wine is not publicly available, being used at the estate only and for charity auctions. Bid for Wine is selling one bottle on behalf of Pebbles, a charity helping deprived children in South Africa.

As this wine is a special cúvee not made publicly available by the winery this may represent the only opportunity to purchase this wine by retail.

See here to bid!
