External Reviews for E. Guigal St.-Joseph Lieu Dit St.-Joseph Blanc
The 2009 and 2010 Cotes du Rhone Blancs are blends of 55% Viognier and the rest Roussanne, Marsanne, Clairette and Bourboulenc, all aged in tank. While there are multiple bottlings given the massive production, they are consistent from bottling to bottling. The freshness, exotic tropical fruits, fragrant bouquets, dry, fleshy mid-palates and crisp finishes of these wines will be admired by consumers. These wines over-deliver in every sense, and they should drink well for several years.
After aging 30 months in 100% new oak the 2009 St.-Joseph Vignes de l Hospice is a wine of extraordinary intensity. It ranks alongside some of the luxury cuvees of Chapoutier Delas Andre Perret and Jean-Louis Chave as one of the finest St.-Josephs of the appellation. It emerges from what may be the most remarkable vineyard from a photogenic perspective towering above the village of Tournon on an incredibly steep slope. A dense purple color is followed by copious aromas of camphor licorice subtle smoke lead pencil shavings blackberries and cassis. This is a superb wine to drink over the next 15+ years. 94+ -Robert Parker Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
Staunch and traditional, this is a broad-shouldered Rhocirc;ne white. Itrsquo;s filled out with marzipan flavors graced with green fig fruit and floral notes of jasmine. A robust wine with firm acidity, this should age well.
This high-toned white offers green plum and plantain notes backed by a crisp, tangy finish.
Guigal is a Rhocirc;ne producer famed for his legendary Cocirc;te Rocirc;ties, especially the coveted La Turque and La Mouline. While his white Cocirc;tes du Rhocirc;ne is made from purchased grapes, and produced on a much larger scale than these reds, it is made in the style of the winery; that is, with care, competence and a regard for the character of the region. That means that when you buy this white Rhocirc;ne, yoursquo;ll get a wine that tastes not only fresh and delicious, filled with waxy pear fruit, but one that has the earthy sense of the place as well. Roast a loup de mew stuffed with fennel, and yoursquo;ll fine yourself on the banks of the Rhocirc;ne.
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.
