Summer Cheap Wine Tour: 2007 E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône Blanc

POURED: about 1 month ago

2007 E. Guigal Blanc White Rhone Blend (Cotes du Rhone, France)

2007 E. Guigal Blanc White Rhone Blend

You don’t have to be French to enjoy this one! If you’ve ever woken up on a crisp, spring morning and smelled freshly blooming flowers, than you’ll be able to appreciate this floral shop in a glass. White flowers on the nose, then delicious apricots on the tongue with a nice minerality.  Medium bodied, crisp acidity, and a nice fresh finish with a few herbal notes.

 

Beautiful blend of 50% Viognier (I’m becoming a HUGE fan of Viognier blends) with the rest made up from Rousanne, Marsanne, Clairette, and Bourboulenc grapes.  I’d pair this up with some curry dishes usually, but for summer purposes out on the back deck, I’d pour it with grilled pork or scallops.  You can find this one for between $12-14 dollars.

Cheers!
