There are many admirable things about Marcel Guigal, but most significant is that he has been a qualitative locomotive that has brought attention to the Rhone Valley, and has raised the quality bar for the entire region. His Cotes du Rhone whites have jumped in quality as he has settled on a general blend of approximately 50% Viognier and the rest Roussanne, Marsanne, Clairette, Bourboulenc, and Grenache Blanc. The excellent tank-aged 2003 Cotes du Rhone blanc reveals copious amounts of exotic fruits, hints of honeysuckle and white peaches, medium body, crisp acidity, and a refreshing style.

Light gold. Floral, spicy citrus and peach scents, with a dusty mineral accent. Clean and brisk, showing a juicy quality and ripe nectarine and peach flavors. Quite complex for the category.

This starts out quietly, then builds with marzipan and quince flavors into an impressive Cocirc;tes du Rhocirc;ne. An herbal note joins the acidity to cut the richness, leaving a long, fresh finish.

The 2000 Cocirc;tes du Rhocirc;ne Blanc (50% Viognier, and the rest Marsanne, Roussanne, and other white wine varietals) is an excellent, fleshy, surprisingly character-filled, dry white that should be consumed over the next 12ndash;18 months. It possesses freshness and depth as well as considerable character.

The 1999 Cocirc;tes du Rhocirc;ne Blanc reveals an increased emphasis on blending with large quantities of Viognier (40%). It is a medium-bodied, dry, tasty offering with a straightforward but alluring nose of honeysuckle and peach as well as excellent purity. Consume it over the next 1ndash;2 years.
