Guigal St. Joseph Blanc "Lieu Dt" 2007
The Guigal family owns vineyards in Condrieu and in the Côte-Rôtie with illustrious plots producing wines such as ‘La Doriane’ in Condrieu, the famous growths of the Côte-Rôtie ‘La Mouline’, ‘La Turque’ and ‘La Landonne’, Côte-Rôtie Château d’Ampuis, Hermitage ‘Ex-Voto’, produced only in the great vintages and Saint-Joseph ‘Lieu-Dit Saint-Joseph’ in red and white, as well as the famous Saint-Joseph red 'Vignes de l’Hospice'. These wines have each become flagships of their appellations. In the cellars of the Guigal estate in Ampuis, the northern appellations of the Rhône Valley are produced and aged. These are the appellations of Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, Hermitage, Saint-Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage. The great appellations of the Southern Rhône; Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Tavel and Côtes-du-Rhône are also aged in the Ampuis cellars. This white is a lot more approachable in terms of price than most of the Guigal stable. It is straw yellow with golden tints. The nose is complex with oaky floral notes, hazlenuts and yellow fruit. It has a very full-bodied attack, with fleshy fruit and a round palate. The complex aromas and a certain roundness are very characteristic of this Saint-Joseph, which comes from the best terroirs of the appellation.

Color: Dark ruby red. Nose: Spices, red berries and delicate aromas of wood. Palate: A wine with round tannins and melted. Aromas of raspberries, blackberries and vanilla. Overall: Harmony between an imperceptible acidity, tannins giving it a good guard but softened by a long aging in oak.
