E. Guigal Crozes-Hermitage Blanc 2017 (91 VM)
“Light, bright straw-yellow. High-pitched aromas of orange zest, apple and honeysuckle, along with a subtle overlay of dusty minerals. Dry and focused on the palate, offering nicely concentrated citrus fruit and melon flavors that show very good clarity and floral lift. Finishes silky and long, with an echo of citrus pith and a lingering floral quality.”
Crozes-Hermitage can be considered the gateway to the red and white wines of the Northern Rhône Valley. Whites make up a small percentage of production in the Rhône, under 2%, but white wines are a little bit of a secret speciality at Guigal and today comprise 25% of their production. And for good reason, as the whites of the Northern Rhône are true discovery wines, immensely appealing and complex.
