91pts Antonio Galloni's Vinous

From the Cotes-du-Rhone, we've got the Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone Blanc, at a drop dead price, and utterly irresistable on a warm day. You name it. Shrimp on the barbie, chevre cheese, garlic and leek pizza, sauteed chicken breasts with an apricot/white wine reduction, a handful of Marcona almonds... How much time do you have??

Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "Light yellow. Mineral-tinged aromas of Meyer lemon, pear and white peach are complemented by a suave floral overtone. Juicy, pure and energetic on the palate, offering pliant orchard and pit fruit and honeysuckle flavors that show sharp definition and back-end lift. Rich but energetic as well, delivering strong finishing cut and lingering florality. The Viognier is definitely making itself heard here. Drinking window: 2020-2024." May 2020

Winery: "Eye: Yellow gold, clear and brilliant. Nose: Freshness marked by the distinctive aromas of Viognier ; white flowers, apricot, acacia and white peach. Palate: Fruity with plenty of richness and body. Overall : A well-rounded wine with elegance, strength and balance. Pair with starters, fish, Asian food."
