E. Guigal Saint-Joseph Blanc 2018 (90 WS)
“This bounces along nicely with an open-knit mix of peach, pear and honeysuckle notes, backed by a kiss of brioche on the finish.”
While the reds of Saint-Joseph are today one of the most exciting stories in the Rhone Valley, the minuscule production of whites, in the hands of the best producers, are absolutely thrilling and in a perhaps less extreme way than the other great whites of the region, namely in Hermitage and Condrieu. Get them while they’re still affordable.
