Out of that classic, rocky alluvial Rhone soils, comes an unctuous, balanced beauty of a white with gorgeous freshness on a rich, round body. Nearly half Grenache blanc, plus 25% Roussanne, 15% Bourboulenc, 3% Piquepoul and 2% Picardan, this is simply an expertly blended Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc from Marcel and Philippe Guigal. From the expressive nose of white flowers and peach to the final, refreshing sip, this is a satisfying ride to Rhone.

Wine Enthusiast

While hints of apple and nut are demure on the nose, this unctuous, full-bodied white offers an abundance of white grapefruit and lemon flavors. It's an elegant, mouth-clinging sip marked by savory tones of smoke and crushed minerals. The blend includes 45% Grenache Blanc, 25% Roussanne, 15% Clairette, 10% Bourboulenc, 3% Piquepoul and 2% Picardan.
