Grapes: Grenache Blanc 50% , Viognier 20% , Roussanne 7.5%
Style: Medium bodied
Country of Origin: France, Côtes du Rhône
The grapes for this wine come from selected vines in the Southern Rhône, picked in the cooler early hours and lightly pressed the same morning. Each variety is fermented separately and, after careful blending, about a quarter of the vinified wine is matured for six months in French oak barrels.
A proper white Côtes du Rhône; fresh, medium-bodied, vinous. The nose is pretty and delicate, with a waft of fennel tops and hints of hedgerow flowers. The flavours are nuanced and refined rather than overt. Careful use of oak adds texture and structure without masking the freshness of this very drinkable white.
A lovely apéritif, or with light starters and grilled fish.
