We always get a head start on this one before any press comes out and forces a price jump. This is one of the best whites from the Rhone and in all of France for under the 100-dollar mark. Its usually very showy right out of the gate and at very well received with scored consistently in the mid-90s. The 2018 vintage in the Rhone looks to be very solid with no detrimental weather extremes. The Northern Rhone ripened very evenly and quickly and is suggested by Guigal that it was a much easier harvest compared to the South.
