2007 E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône Blanc

SKU #1045065

90 points Robert Parker: "The beautiful 2007 Cotes du Rhone Blanc, a blend of 50% Viognier and the rest Roussanne, Marsanne, Clairette, and Bourboulenc, is the finest he has yet produced. Amazing aromatics, fresh citrus fruits, and a hint of minerality are presented in a medium-bodied, delicious style that most consumers will love." (10/08) 90 points and on of the year's 100 Top Values, Wine & Spirits: "This starts out quietly, then builds with marzipan and quince flavors into an impressive Côtes du Rhône. An herbal note joins the acidity to cut through the richness, leaving a long, fresh finish." 13.5% abv.

Very pretty wine, with an aromatic nose of peaches, white flowers and quince. Lots of minerality on palate and a quite refreshing finish. I cannot think of any white wine drinker not liking this wine. It will be very nice with curry dishes, creamy pastas dishes, mushroom risotto, crabs, creamy cheeses, roast pork, scallops.

Score based on my opinion of quality to price. This is a stunner on the value front. I agree with Parrker, and Jauques at K&L -- it's a non-typical CdR white blend from Guigal, but they got this blend right. Every white drinker should find something to love in this (assuming they like viognier), and Rhone lovers will make this their house white as long as the case lasts.
Drink from 2010 to 2012

OK .. this is a run of the mill CdR. White gives it some appeal but it lacks complexity or subtlety.

This is a phenomenal bottle of wine. This wine's minerality is incredible considering the price point. I served this at a party at my house and no one believed the price after tasting it. I went back for a case. You won't be disappointed bringing this home.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
