The 2016 Cotes du Rhone Blanc is, as usual, dominated by Viognier, which accounts for almost two-thirds of the blend. There’s 15% Roussanne, and the rest is smaller proportions of Marsanne, Clairette and Bourboulenc. Grenache Blanc accounts for only 2% to 3% of the blend. The wine is medium-bodied and plump, with floral, apricot aromas and decent roundness in the mouth, balanced by just enough citrus zest to provide a bit of an edge. Drink it in its youth.



這間法國隆河區E.Guigal出產的酒款,一直都是受到Robert Parker的青睞。他說過:「在這個世界上再也沒有其他釀酒師能像Marcel Guigal一樣,無論在任何氣侯狀況下,皆能釀製出高品質的葡萄酒」。而且E.Guigal酒廠的Côtes du Rhône酒款品質一直保持水準,Parker更說:「它是全法國最超值的酒款之一」。而這款E.Guigal Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc 2015,是採用65% Viognier, 15% Roussanne及其他另外四種白葡萄釀造的,平均樹齡是35年以上。
