“A blend of 95% Marsanne and 5% Roussanne, the 2013 Crozes Hermitage Blanc is also outstanding. Almond paste, crushed rock, white flower and peachy notes all flow to a medium-bodied, elegant and pure 2013 white that will drink well for 3-5 years.
The father/son team of Marcel and Philippe Guigal continue to keep their estate at the top of the hierarchy in the Rhône Valley. All the way from their inexpensive Côtes du Rhône to their top-end Côte Rôties and Hermtiage, the attention to detail and focus on quality is unmatched. Readers should also check out the recent Rhone Retrospective article I wrote that covered the Saint Joseph Vignes des Hospices, Côte Rôtie Brune et Blonde, Côte Rôtie Chateau d’Ampuis and Côte Rôtie La Mouline cuvees going back for over a decade. I said it there, and I’ll say it again here, this estate is producing some of the most incredible and singular wines in the world.” -Jeb Dunnuck
