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

Very bright and precise, with a racy mineral note running through the chamomile, verbena, white peach and blanched almond notes. The finish is long and racy.

Almost as good as the '07, Guigal pared down the production of this wine by one-third to maintain its quality level. Pear and melon flavors are buttressed by weight and richness while still retaining freshness and a touch of spice on the finish. Imported by Ex-Cellars Wine Agencies, Inc.

This high-toned white offers green plum and plantain notes backed by a crisp, tangy finish.

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 the richness, leaving a long, fresh finish.

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.

Firm, with lots of peach pit and bitter almond notes backed by a layer of citrus fruit. Focused finish. 55 percent Viognier, with Roussanne, Marsanne, Clairette, Bourboulenc and Grenache Blanc. Drink now.

The 2006 Cotes du Rhone white, which is a blend of about 55% Viognier and the rest Roussanne, Marsanne, Clairette, and Bourboulenc, is the best white Cotes du Rhone the Guigals have ever made. An amazing wine, I am not sure it doesn't deserve an even higher score, but it was just about ready to go into the bottle when I tasted it. The wine reveals terrific honeysuckle notes intermixed with some white peach and tangerine skin in a medium-bodied, crisp, fruit-driven style with excellent acidity and depth. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

Winemaker's Notes:

Guigal's Cotes du Rhone blanc has gone from strength to strength over recent vintages, largely because he now uses at least 50% Viognier in the blend [the rest is mostly Roussanne and Marsanne]...possesses [a] good body as well as abundant fruit, texture, and fat." - Wine Advocate
