A little long in the tooth for Rousanne. Great texture, lots of bruised fruit, and taking low acid whites to new levels of low acidity.

Really nice mature CdP Blanc for Saturday tapas lunch. This drinks a bit like a southern Spanish white too - honey, apricot, nuttiness and just the right amount of fattiness. Very low acidity pairs well with high acid foods like gazpacho, though those who prefer a bit of acid and minerality in their whites might not love this - I thought this paired great with tapas. Happy Saturday y’all.

Oxidised. Dead. Barely drinkable, but not undrinkable!
