2017 E. Guigal Crozes-Hermitage Blanc, France, Rhone, Wine Review
A very nice northern Rhone white, perhaps a bit lighter in style, but in a good way. It is a blend of 95% Marsanne, and 5% Roussanne. Light yellow/gold in color, clear and bright. The nose is nice with vanilla, peach, pears and spice. Medium bodied. Crisp acidity. On the palate, tangerine with slight lemon peel and the oak/spice continues thru to the finish. A bit of grapefruit on the finish as well. This is very nice on its own but even better with food. It went well with a vegetarian cassoulet. Drink over the next three to five years.
