Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Unripe stone fruit, unripe tropical fruit, fresh pressed white and yellow flowers, raw almond, grated nutmeg, citrus blossom and quince paste blend together seamlessly in this 2016 Rhone white. Lovely juice. Food pairings endless. Try with roast chicken with preserved lemon. 90 Points.
Rebecca Meir-Liebman - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A creamy textured wine, with medium acidity that refreshes and balances its full-bodied nature. On the palate, peach and apricot notes with some spice, while its body and texture allow successful pairing with heavier dishes such as: roasted Cornish hen or a rich pasta with cream sauce. It’s straight forward, but will shine with a food pairing that coaxes out its richness and complexity. Good value for money.
Brittany Gregory reviewed this wine as follows:

A balanced French white blend. Very aromatic with floral and citrus notes. Full of stone fruit (crisp peach, apricot) flavours with hints of citrus. An elegant and medium bodied dry white wine. A great summer white, perfect for sipping on its own or enjoying with pad Thai or summer salads.
A.C. E. Guigal 2016 is very aromatic, medium-bodied Côtes du Rhône white wine from Château d'Ampus and a blend of 65% Viognier, 15% Rousanne, 10% Marsanne and 10% Bourboulenc. Look for honey, ginger spice and citrus on the nose and palate. Lovely now, drink for the next three years. - Community Wine Reviews
