E. Guigal Cotes du Rhone White 2011 Wine Review (NW)
Aromatic melon and floral notes on the nose
Full bodied on the palate
Layered finish with honeycomb and stone fruit on the finish
Here's a white wine I recommend when you want to venture into Rhone wines from France. It's primarily made from Viognier with a few other grapes blended in. Typically priced anywhere from $10-15, it's a good value wine and distinctively different than Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc for example. Raise a glass!
