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.
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
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!
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.
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.
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.
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 2003 (primarily Roussanne and Viognier) possesses good body as well as abundant fruit, texture, and fat.
The 1999 Côtes du Rhône 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 1-2 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.
