E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône Blanc 2016 (Viognier Blend)
VINTAGES#: 290296  SHOP 
The normal blend of Viognier, Roussanne, and Marsanne, the 2016 Cote du Rhone Blanc tastes like a mini-Condrieu with its white peach, apricot, spice and citrus aromas and flavors. This medium-bodied, elegant, yet textured beauty over-delivers and will keep for 2-3 years. Score: 90 Pts. (Jeb Dunnuck,, Jan. 24, 2018)
Enjoy this lush, fragrant Viognier with Chicken with Red Curry-Peanut Glaze.

Château d'Ampuis Côte-Rôtie 2013 (Syrah Blend)
VINTAGES#: 398081  SHOP 
Tasted as a final blend and scheduled to be bottled just after my visit, the 2013 Côte Rôtie Chateau d'Ampuis is a smokin' good wine in the vintage. Deep, concentrated and structured, with classic and masculine notes of graphite, smoked black fruits and crushed rocks, this full-bodied beauty has bright acidity, ripe tannin and beautiful length. It needs 7-8 years of cellaring to hit maturity and will have two to three decades of overall longevity. Score: 94 Pts. (Jeb Dunnuck,, Dec. 30, 2016)
