Crozes-Hermitage Blanc, E. Guigal 2019

In a nutshell:
A rich, full and rounded Northern Rhône white from the highly respected E. Guigal estate.

The lowdown:
Over the hill of Hermitage and its prestigious but tiny vineyards lies Crozes-Hermitage which in capable hands such as E. Guigal can produce similar whites but at much better value. Guigal's Crozes-Hermitage Blanc is classic cuvée of mostly Marsanne with just a small amount of Rousanne from vineyards that were once part of the admired (so much so that Guigal bought it) Vallouit estate. Only partially aged in oak before bottling the wine has a lovely golden hue in the glass with floral aromas of white flowers and hawthorn blossom along with notes of acacia and delicate oak. Full-bodied on the palate with a weight and richness though there is balanced acidity which imparts a remarkable freshness to the wine and a clean finish.

When to drink:
Best served at 10°C-12°C and ready for drinking now and over the next year. Classic pairing would be pan fried trout or seabass but also with richer seafoods such as lobster and crab. Also try with white meats like veal and pork, soft, strong cheeses such as Epoisses, and also various Asian cuisine.

Suitable for Vegans
