A great vintage for whites, the 2013 Cotes du Rhone Blanc (mostly Viognier) has outstanding notes of white peach and tangerine to go with an elegant, seamless style on the palate. It’s a smoking value to drink over the coming 1-2 years. Jeb Dunnuck.

Score : 89

Pretty, with honeysuckle, quinine, white peach and mirabelle plum notes that give way to a slightly more unctuous feel through the anise- and white ginger—accented finish. Drink now. 7,850 cases imported. James Molesworth.

 

Gault & Millau

Score : 14,5/20


Florale à l'attaque et frugale en bouche, cette cuvée propre, nette et sans bavure conjugue une mâche gourmande et rapide à l'élégance fraîche d'une finale revigorante.
