This blend from the south of France displays a very pale straw hue, but don't be fooled by the light shade, its bouquet and palate power are substantial. Lovely aromas of perfume, florals, peach, lemon, and minerals. Medium bodied and slightly creamy mouthfeel. 90+ year old vines produce concentrated flavours of appley-pear and lemon-lime, with good acidity, a smidge of oak and a kiss of sweetness that offsets some bitterness. Very complex, and lengthy. Some alcohol heat (13.5%). Jan 2014.

Blend of 80% Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris, and 20% Roussanne. Lemon, mineral and floral aromas from the cork. Quite aromatic with nice florals, wet rock, pleasing barnyard and hints of peach notes. Light weight, with fresh, crisp acids on the palate. Complex flavour profile featuring white peach, acacia flowers, elegant spice, and herbs. Dry with good structure and a long, mouth-watering finish. Highly recommended. Tasted Feb/2014. Score: 90+ pts.

Certainly a complex mix going on here in the glass. I get cantaloupe, honey, stone, and a hint of spice. Balanced, harmonious, and 'classy' as they say. Nice value too.
