The 2016 Côtes du Rhône Blanc delivers the goods, and the quality of this cuvée has been incredible over the past few years. Made from 60% Viognier, 15% Roussanne and the rest Marsanne, Clairette, Bourboulenc and Grenache Blanc, it gives up tons of Viognier character in its white flowers, peach, and pineapple aromas and flavors. Drink this medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, elegant white over the coming year or two. It tastes like a Condrieu but costs about one-third the price.
Limpid straw-yellow. Fresh pear, orange and white flowers on the fragrant, incisive nose. Juicy and energetic in the mouth, offering focused citrus and orchard fruit and honeysuckle flavors and seamless texture. Closes on a minerally note, displaying very good clarity and spicy bite.
Intense, with a citrus oil accent weaving around the creamed peach, pear and apricot notes. A flash of bitter almond on the finish gives this needed tension to balance the opulent fruit. Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne, Clairette, Bourboulenc and Grenache Blanc. Drink now through 2020
