Bourboulenc and Grenache Blanc seem to dominate; the nose is of tropical and sub-tropical fruit such as papaya, various melons, and pear.

    The 2018 Saint-Vincent blend CdR from Gabriel Meffre is on target once more: ... once more: The backbone of Grenache Blanc is bolstered by some ginger snap of Viognier and soft herbal tea flavours and scent of Roussanne. Bouquet is very inviting at this price point: kiwi fruit, wet iron minerality, and viognier ginger and cake spice. Quite... Read More

  • Epoch Estate Wines White 2018

    Snoothrank:

    47% Grenache Blanc, 42% Viognier, 11% Roussanne -- Beautiful, straw color in the glass. Viognier is immediately recognizable on the nose--honeysuckle, apricot. Again, Viognier fruitiness is apparent on the tongue--peach, table grapes, and the almost-gewurztraminer spiciness. However, this wine is loaded with acid--from the other grapes, I wou... Read More

  • Vignobles Jerome Quiot Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Lieu-Dit les Combes d'Arnevel 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Considerable lime, white table grape and gooseberry on the nose with a slight golden hue in the glass. Entry is smooth and balanced - with acidic gooseberry elements, citrus (lime) and quince (or perhaps apple-pear). This is fine white wine with elegance - one you could drink all afternoon on the patio for a great price. 90. Read More

  • M. Chapoutier Bila-Haut Blanc 2015

    Snoothrank:

    The 2015 Bila Haut Blanc Cotes du Roussillon is a masterful blend of Grenache Blanc, Vermentino, Marsanne and other varieties; it has aged gracefully over the 3 years it has stood in the bottle, evoking rich spicy fig, orange, more spice and orange peel on entry... but measured out perfectly. A steal, but drink up now and buy up the 2016. 88. Read More
