What a mouthful this gem is. A reference point in southern France.
Huge dollops of Meyer lemons on the nose. Palate displays biscotti and maple syrup. Huge textured finish, with a viscous mouthfeel. Extremely decadent. 15 - 20 years of runway in front of it.

Cinquante 50 Blanc Viognier Chardonnay

Vintage 2019 | apricot from Viognier is dominant in smell, while a certain souplesse and earthiness from Chardonnay is present in taste. Happy marriage of two grapes. Went well with codfish and broad beans, asparagus and samphire. Nice wine. | at Élevé — 3 days ago

Rhône blanc + Chardonnay blends can be very interesting. Some do these in the US but it’s rare to see it in the Old World.

Delicious! Crisp and citrusy but retains nice body. Holds up well to food but no problem sipping on the patio. — 14 days ago

Côte - Rotie 2015

Youthful with good structure & balance. Enjoyed its dark jammy, inky fruits that had a polished & elegant feel. Just needs a few more years. — 7 days ago

Santa Maria Valley Viognier 2019

This was my note from my last tasting of this: Bought this after tasting at the vineyards. I usually avoid non N. Rhone viognier like the plague (or Covid, too soon?). But this was excellent, and compelling enough to make me buy more than 1 btl. Notes from Day 2 open, and in the fridge overnight, and then in a refrigerated bag during a hike followed by a long car ride. On the nose: peach, tangerine, lychee, so vibrant and with a soft minerality. On the palate: excellent acidity, which is always the problem outside the Rhone, good density...sappy without being overly oily, fantastic minerality on the palate with a soft bitter walnut note. Excellent.

This time, perhaps a bit less minerality.

Luscious acidity, hanging out on the beach (tropical fruit) and a breathe of the sea. — 11 days ago
