  2. A Visit from Winemaker Philippe Guigal

    On a recent visit to Chicago, Philippe Guigal shared a sneak peak of his highly anticipated 2015 white wines. White accounts for 2% of Rhone Valley’s production so these are easy to overlook. However, at Guigal, white wine is 20% of their output, so there must be something to it, right? Could this be the next “big thing” in wine? After all, these wines are the perfect middle ground and are a great opportunity to try something new: lighter and zestier than Chardonnay and more guts than a Sauvignon Blanc. Across the board these wines show excellent balance, structure, and kaleidoscopic flavor, with near endless possibilities for food pairing.
