Qupé’s 2016 Marsanne is gorgeous. Apricot pit, chamomile, lemon confit and flowers grace the palate in this soft, exquisite white. A healthy dollop of Roussanne plays a big role in shaping the wine's personality and overall feel. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, June 2018)

Light yellow visually pleasing. On the nose there is oranges, apricots, white flowers and a hint of minerality. On the light side for the palate. I was really looking forward to this wine and it kind of let me down. I tend to really like the Marsanne - Roussane combination and I was hoping to have a good American one. Orange zest, big on the minerality, river rock, tangerine.

Quite nice, dry, brighter acidity then any other M/R I've had.
