From the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland; a listing of Tom and Patrick’s top 12 white wines for hot summer weather (and a few reds for good measure). Listed within were 2 wines from E. Guigal – the Condrieu and Cotes du Rhone blanc, both 2015 vintage. Tom Marquardt and Patrick Darr have had a weekly, syndicated wine column since 1985.

“From the same great producer [E. Guigal], this reasonably priced blend – usually clairette, grenache blanc, bouboulenc and viognier – resembles the higher priced Condrieu in style.”

This is a blog post from Tom Kobylarz after the Masterclass seminar with Philippe Guigal earlier this year in New York City. The tasting focused on the new releases from Guigal for 2017 and covered nearly the entire range of wines, including the vaunted “la las”.

“The reds were firm and very young with all of them from the 2013 vintage. Each showing a tightly knit personality that is fresh, dense and long, all with great potential for aging.”

A new post in Food & Wine focuses on 50 of the world’s most reliable, inexpensive wines that offer consistently amazing quality – year in and year out. The list includes 2 VINTUS wines, the E. Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone Rouge and the Langlois-Chateau Crémant de Loire. See the comments below on each vine, and here to see the complete list.

E. Guigal Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge ($15)
While Guigal’s greatest acclaim derives from its extraordinary single-vineyard Côte-Rôties, which Rhône wine fanatics refer to as the “La Las”—La Mouline, La Landonne and La Turque—this family-owned firm makes top-notch wines at every price. Its typically Syrah-based Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge is full-bodied and compellingly aromatic.

Langlois-Chateau Crémant de Loire Brut NV ($20)
It’s sparkling, it’s from France, it’s delicious—and it isn’t Champagne. Langlois-Chateau, founded in 1885, makes a variety of wines, but its shortbread-scented, pear-inflected Crémant is the one that rises above the rest. A blend of Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc, it ages for 24 months on its lees (the yeast cells left over after fermentation) rather than the nine months typical of most Crémants, which helps give it unusual lushness and depth.
