Fragrant and floral on the nose, opens into slight notes of nectarine and peach, mainly from the Viognier, that add to its moderate body which finish out with a touch of acidity and minerality. The finish is quite weak for what you would expect from the bouquet and the front of the palate. A good value from a great wine maker.

Part of a mini France vs Italy tasting. This stood out as being strangely soaping with a bitter end. Something might have been wrong with this particular bottle. For more on the tasting, please visit http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/06/france-vs-italy.html

A 95% Marsanne, 5% Rousanne blend matched with chèvre, dressed radicchio, walnut croutons, ripe pear and toasted walnuts. A lovely wine restrained richness, almond, hazelnut and lime nose but the goats cheese was a little too strong for the wine, deadeneing it somewhat. But the radicchio and walnuts worked beautifully. http://www.spittoon.biz/wine_and_food_matching_ideas_f.html

Readers wanting a slightly more Burgundian, smoky, roasted nut, creamy styled white should check out the 2011 St.-Joseph Lieu-Dit St.-Joseph Blanc, which is also a blend of 90% Marsanne and 10% Roussanne aged in 100% new oak. The oak provides subtle notes of toast, but this full-bodied, creamy-textured white also exhibits plenty of creme brulee, honeyed orange, peach marmalade, quince and white currant characteristics. This beauty will offer terrific drinking over the next 5–7 years.

Intense yellow plum, fig and poached pear aromas are deepened by suave vanilla and anise notes. Lively orange pith and pit fruit flavors show excellent clarity, focus and back-end power. Deftly combines sweetness and energy, finishing with lingering vanilla and honey qualities.

A plump, mouthfilling, tropical style, with dried peach, mango and apricot notes offset by a taut thread of orange zest. Singed almond and ginger course through the richly textured finish. Drink now through 2016.

Followers of the GUIGAL C tes-du-Rh ne will enjoy this wine which flatters as much as its famous red cousin!

The 2005 Cotes du Rhone Blanc reveals the exotic fruit of Viognier, but with good acidity and body. Drink it over the next 1-2 years.

Pale yellow. Melon, nectarine and honeysuckle on the nose, with notes of anise and white pepper adding complexity. Gains sweetness with air and offers pliant honeydew and orchard fruit flavors, with a touch of spice on the back half. I like this wine's complexity and finishing sappiness.

Smooth, crisp and lively, offering exuberant pear, spice and floral aromas and flavors. Balanced and appealing to drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

Yellow gold, clear and brilliant. On the nose, freshness marked by the distinctive aromas of Viognier, white flowers, apricot, acacia and white peach. On the palate, it is fruity with plenty of richness and body. Overall, a well-rounded wine with elegance, strength and balance.
