Comtesse Madeleine Blanc Côtes du Rhône Lirac White Rhone Blend 2018

Nice blend for the price.

Barrel-fermented and aged in mostly older oak, the 2018 Lirac Blanc Comtesse Madeleine is a blend of 40% Marsanne, 35% Clairette, 20% Grenache Blanc, and 5% Picpoul.

An 88-acre estate, Château de Montfaucon sits just across the Rhône River from the esteemed vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It is owned and operated by Rodolphe de Pins, a UC Davis graduate and former member of the winemaking staff at Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe.

Comtesse Madeleine de Montfaucon Côtes du Rhône Clairette 2016

Palmer Emmitt

Flinty minerality, orange peel and a distinct and intense shot of herbes de Provence. The lack of fruit might leave you wondering where the 93 point RPWA score came from, but this is a focused, unique, and mind-bending wine from 140+ year old vines. Pairs awesomely with French fries. — 5 months ago

La Baronnie Madeleine Chinon Cabernet Franc 2007

Black currant, bell pepper, mushroom, wet leafs and leather. Medium tannin, a bit integrated. Thin and a bit short. Not a big vintage to hold for long, but a lot of wine for hardly any money. — 2 months ago
