France?s Rhone Valley is best known for inky Syrahs and vibrant red blends, but the region?s white wines are a hidden gem for those in the know. Based on the Viognier grape, with dashes of nutty Marsanne and Roussanne, these whites combine citrus and ripe golden apple flavors with hints of almond, walnut and cream in bottles that are rich yet refreshing. Lighter in body than most oaked Chardonnays, yet far heavier than Sauvignon Blanc, these wines are a perfect match for roasted chicken and warming fall fare. Look for ?Rhone Valley? on the label, since French bottles rarely include the names of the grape variety.
