Le fruité est frais, belle nervosité en bouche, la malo bloquée lui va bien.

Fresh peach, tangerine, buttered citrus and floral notes all emerge from the 2017 Crozes Hermitage Blanc, which is mostly Marsanne that had its malolactic fermentation blocked. It’s medium-bodied, nicely textured, and has juicy acidity, all making for a delicious and satisfying white that will be versatile on the table.

 

WINE ADVOCATE

Score : 89

Guigal's 2017 Crozes Hermitage Blanc delivers ample melon and pear aromas and flavors. It's medium to full-bodied, round and succulent, with just enough freshness to suggest it will drink well for the next couple of years. Hints of honey and dried spices linger on the finish.
