I tasted several vintages and this wine is consistently great year after year. Wonderful aromas of green and stone fruits with citrus notes. On the palate apple, peach and pear flavors, crisp with good balance, fresh acidity with a lively edge. The finish shows nutty earthy tones. I met with the distributor, Pasternak Wine Imports 2 years ago who indicated this wine can be enjoyed now, or put it down for a few years, the age will benefit the wine greatly, he was right on both counts.

First CdP Blanc I’ve had. 40% Grenache Blanc, 40% Roussane, 10% Clairette, 10% Bourboulenc. Round and broad but not viscous. Finished bone dry.

This was the white. Perfectly nice; I prefer less Roussanne.
