About

Ratings:

94

Seductive and expressive, with a firming layer of bitter almond, citrus pith and mineral notes buoying a ripe mix of melon, yellow plum and peach flavors. Big in stature, with remarkable density and saltiness, this hums through the powerful finish with serious energy, flint and smoke. Marsanne and Roussanne. Drink now through 2035. 330 cases made, 55 cases imported.

92 Joe Czerwinski - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2019 Crozes-Hermitage Blanc Domaine Defrance Notes Blanches—a parcel selection of Marsanne grown on galets in the area of Chanos-Curson—is a big, rich, full-bodied and oaked effort that delivers the goods. Notes of baked apple and ripe pears mingle easily on the nose, while the finish is reasonably clean and refreshing, despite the wine's bulk.
