Crozes-Hermitage Blanc 2015
Marcel Guigal admitted that the warm 2015 growing season was the vintage of a lifetime for him and his reds. That heat can be trickier to handle when it comes to the whites, but this Crozes-Hermitage Blanc is crisp, racy and sleek. It’s a blend of Marsanne and Roussanne with elegant honeysuckle, orange blossom, dried apricot, tangy citrus and ripe peach notes, which has the delightful bitterness of almonds and fennel on the finish. Serve alongside spaghetti alle vongole, lemon sole, crumbly cheeses, roasted vegetables, roast chicken or fishcakes with tartar sauce.
E. Guigal is a simply legendary winery, which has passed from founder Etienne to his son Marcel, and now on to his grandson Philippe. According to Robert Parker, it’s “a qualitative locomotive that has brought attention to the Rhône Valley, raising the quality bar for the entire region.” And Parker has backed this up by awarding it more perfect 100 point scores than any other producer on the planet. Although famed for their Northern Rhône reds, the whites are not to be missed.
