Tasting Note: 65% Rousanne, 30% Grenache Blanc, 5% Marsanne, a touch of Viognier. A beautiful golden yellow in the glass; bright and clear. The bouquet is rich and complex with subtle notes of lime blossom, star anise, toasted almonds and buttery brioche. Complex and elegant, the wine has balanced freshness and acidity, with mineral notes and a hint of citrus complemented by an exquisitely round texture from the light 8-month demi muid oak ageing. Finishes powerful and long.
