Pretty with nice acid. White flowers and apple skin. Med - complexity. Fine texture and short finish. #alaingraillot #crozeshermitage #blanc #marsanne #roussanne #rhonevalley #ctbucklinwine

80% Marsanne 20% Rousanne from 3ha of vines on the flat alluvial fan in between the Rhone and Isére rivers filled with sand, clay and river rock...1,250 cases. Not my favorite vintage but still ridiculously good. Unctuous, oily, floral, jasmine, pear, bruised apple, FLOWERS, Asian spices, dry finishing with mouthwatering acidity. Total inspiration wine, we will make this in NE Oregon. Love this shit, incredible pairing with sautéed foie, strwberry purée , sunflower cake...
