Overview A Guigal wine is generally a safe bet. One of the best-known names in the Côtes du Rhône, Guigal’s wines range in price from the affordable to the astronomical. An attention to quality permeates even the lower price points, resulting in impressive offerings like this one. In the previous two editions, Guigal’s red has performed best, but this year the white takes the lead—a bit of a surprise from a region that is known predominantly for red wine. This bottle might serve as your clue that the white wines of the Rhône are well worth exploring.

Nose It’s aromatic and spring-like, with floral and citrus aromas.

Mouth Fruity and flowery, it has enough acid and citrus flavors to remain light and refreshing.
