Food Pairings for E. Guigal White Rhone Blend St. Joseph Lieu-Dit St. Joseph Blanc
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.

Floral & peach notes on the nose/palate (had just a taste at a tasting)
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

External Reviews for E. Guigal White Rhone Blend St. Joseph Lieu-Dit St. Joseph Blanc
Followers of the GUIGAL C tes-du-Rh ne will enjoy this wine which flatters as much as its famous red cousin!
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.
A very fresh, floral style, with breezy white peach and pear notes and a juicy, green almond-tinged finish. Drink now.
A rich, ripe Cotes du Rhone, this is satiny with peach flavor and sparked with white pepper spice. Pitched perfectly for winter dishes, it would also be delicious with some grilled chicken this summer.
The 2009 Cotes du Rhone Blanc, which is usually 50% Viognier and the rest a blend of Roussanne, Marsanne, Clairette and Bourboulenc aged in tank, is just lovely. Fresh honeyed notes with some tropical fruits and other assorted citrus all jump from the glass of this medium-bodied, crisp, fresh wine, which over-delivers in personality, flavor and complexity. Drink it over the next 1-2 years.
Plump and forward, with peach and melon notes, backed by a mineral hint on the finish. Very fresh. 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.
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.
