A fantastic display of a Rhône Blanc and an exceptional showing early on from the ‘16 vintage. Full bodied and rich with an underlying freshness, and elegance. White flowers, tropical fruits, spices and a touch of hazelnut with a lingering finish.

Stone fruit, peach/apricot, melon, big minerality, med bodied and med- acid. Great aromatics, but a but falls a bit flat on the finish. Fun to try.

Tactile and structure - coconut, salt, lemon oil, grapefruit peel even with some more feral, earthy tones. Super tight, condensed at the moment, but beaming with promise

Slightly past it’s prime but still drinking well. Dried cherries, candied citrus, lavender. Medium weight and intensity.

Ripe, like Cali ripe Roussanne. Quite a nice wine but the richness could be tempered by a bit more acidity. Went great with the lobster and winter salad.

2012: 80% Roussanne. Quite opulent, floral, sweet, stone fruit apricot and peach. Vanilla. 65-70 year old Roussanne vines. Very creamy, almost ice-cream, vanilla, stone fruit, lovely opulence and good balanced acidity. Good length, complex and long.

At a great time now on this 2007. Rich body with fresh acidity and lingering finish. Perfect with our Thai dinner menu.
