Star bright yellow gold. Inviting nose of ripe quince and citrus rind. Full-bodied palate echoes the nose adding a firm mineral streak alongside medium acidity. A great Rhône white that’s ready to accompany a wide range of hearty autumn white wine fare. Roasted poultry, seafood risotto or casserole, or white sauces will shine particularly well. My go to tonight is teriyaki salmon. Drink now through 2023.

Drank 4/22/20. Nice with red snapper.

Light nose of white peach and wet rocks. Flavors of Stone fruits, underripe apricot, and a touch of citrus. Finishes with medium body, peach, and mineral. Nice balance.

2/22/7/4/3 +50= 88 pts.

Matchstick, flint, wet stone, and honey notes. Probably over the hill by at least six months to a year. Drank 2015 vintage.

Golden delicious apples and ripe pears on a lifted, aromatic nose laced with minerality. Juicy and round, honeysuckle and apple pie, not overly sweet, well balanced.

Need more of this Rhone white - drinks above its price point.
