Tasting Notes:
From one of the lesser known appellations of the northern Rhone comes this delightful white, a blend of two traditional varieties that give it complexity and balance, freshness and delicacy. A lovely wine.

Critic Reviews:
'A slight tropical note here with ripe fruit and white flowers. Nice ripeness of fruit and good zippy freshness – a honeyed note and well-integrated alcohol. A touch of lanolin on the finish – nice!' 16/20, Alistair Cooper MW (jancisrobinson.com)

'Majority Marsanne. Bay leaf and pine needles on the nose, almost peppery - very lively and inviting aromatics. A squeeze of citrus over the rich apricot fruit; very long and perfectly balanced. Good tension in the wine; this is very well done.' 90/100 (Matt Walls, Decanter)

'Pale gold. Fresh and sharply focused on the nose, displaying mineral-accented citrus and pit fruit flavors and a hint of honey. Fleshy but dry and focused, showing good, spicy lift to the ripe Meyer lemon and peach flavors. The mineral note comes back on the finish, adding closing lift and cut. This lithe wine is quite elegant for the vintage.' 90/100 ( vinous.com)
