Ferraton Père & Fils

La Source Saint-Joseph Blanc 2015

At the ramen shop the guys all the way in the kitchen could smell the wine just after we opened it 🤯 never had st Joseph Blanc like this. So complex and mineral and not forward with the fat fruit that viognier roussane or Marsanne can sometimes be. Great wine here to be sure — 2 months ago

Saint-Joseph Marsanne Roussanne 2015

9.3

Sylvain really killed the 2018’s. Big, ripe and rich nose, yellow fruits and waxey. Palate is ripe and rich but with lovely freshness and appealing bitterness. Juicy and lively with lovely energy, delineation and admirable purity. Good length. Superb depth on the nose after air. Really pure. Amazing freshness, concentration and depth. Good sap — 9 days ago

Yves Cuilleron

Marsanne 2017

Perhaps my top ‘value’ find of the year to date is this village Marsanne by Yves Cuilleron.

Decanted for an hour, on the nose this was perfumed if a little restrained, with lemon zest, wet stone, honey.

A far more expressive wine on the palate, however. Oily and honeyed, combining rich, tropical fruits with a minerality and acidity that brings it all together. Dry, with a lasting finish though one that loses some breadth after a while - a touch flabby. Nonetheless, this entry level Cuilleron provides incredible bang for your buck. The 2017 drinks well now and I don’t see any advantage to cellaring.

Sine Qua Non

Lightmotif Roussanne Blend

2014 Vintage. 15.6% Alcohol. This style is not for everyone. Roussane dominant on the nose and taste. I’d prefer more acidity and more Chardonnay. Looks like an overaged white with dark yellow color and plenty of tropical notes. Best after open three days, but argon gassed and refrigerated. — 3 days ago

The aroma is exquisitely defined and perfumed. The body has the togetherness and the structure shows dynamic tension. A virtuosic interpretation of the brilliant 2018 vintage. — 9 days ago
