Vintages 2012

 

Wine Advocate #210 - Dec 2013

Score :  88

Starting out the whites and a smoking value, the 2012 Cotes du Rhone Blanc is a blend of 65% Viognier, 15% Roussanne, 10% Marsanne, 5% Clairette, 3% Bourboulenc and 2% Grenache Blanc that’s vinified and aged all in stainless steel. It offers beautiful white peach, flowers and hints of citrus in a clean, balanced and juicy style. Medium-bodied and straight up delicious, it sells for a song, and is a great intro into Rhone Valley whites. Jeb Dunnuck.

Gault & Millau

Score : 14,5/20

Une cuvée teintée d'effets aériens, (iode et salinité), envolée d'amers chatoyant et pérennes, florilège de saveurs entonnées comme une symphonie. En bouche le nectar est fin et alerte, légèrement épicé. A déguster sur la plage sur des grillades.
