E. Guigal Saint Joseph Blanc

Grown on vines between 20-50 years of age, Saint-Joseph is a serious and excellent wine, with weight and complexity.  Guigal’s is aged partly in stainless steel and partly in oak barrels, and is fresh, round and quite elegant.  These rather special, full-bodied dry white wines are particularly suited for full-flavored foods. “Offering more richness, texture […]
